Let's talk turkey...

One of the advantages of living so close to the Arboretum is the chance to drop by on the way to work in the morning for a few minutes of breathing and checking out the local flora and fauna. It's especially lovely in the fall, and the turkeys are fearless because there's a no hunting zone in the Arb.

Sometimes the turkeys follow the runners and do a little turkey fitness. They're smart birds, and know just how close you can get before you're a threat. Apparently they don't think much of my stalking skills; I could have plucked a tail feather.
