A funny thing happened on the Blue Ridge Parkway today


I encountered this "mutant" wild turkey that apparently has four legs. Now, if we can only cross-breed one of these with domestic fowl, we will have more drumsticks than we can shake a fork at.

This was an adult turkey guiding a flock of young turkeys across the Blue Ridge Parkway and one of the little ones must have been directly behind her. All in all there were about 15 young turkeys in the flock and her family procession stopped traffic for a few minutes.

This is just the tail end of the procession and  momma is bringing up the rear.

As the young turkeys made it to safety, the female turkey arched her back and slowly strutted the last few steps across the Parkway.

It made a grand finale to the procession.
