We are driving down the dike road south of here - looking for Snow Geese and Trumpeter Swans - when we were attacked!!! And I mean attacked.
Heading straigh for our car!!! Running down the road faster than most dogs - here they come!!!! The three mad turkeys!!!
All three - coming at us fast - Don slams on the brakes - we don't want to masacre them - poor dumb turkeys. We've never seen such big ones!!! (taken through the windshield)
They came around to Don's side of the car first and looked in - I was laughing so hard I didn't get a picture - then they swooped around to my side and bobbed up and down - still laughing I finally got a picture of one of their heads - and lots of pictures of the ground and the dike.
This one is looking in my window!!!!!
This one is on the dike - looking down at me threateningly - yes, that is a threatening eye if ever I say one "Give me your bread, your sandwich, your chips, your cookies, your coupons for a free loaf of bread - I don't care what you have - just give it up!" - and making a loud turkey noise - these things can really set up a squawk!!!!
Look at the pretty feathers - but who is going to get any closer - not me -these things were threatening and if we had the windows open I'm sure they would have tried to climb in.
As we were driving away - after making sure none of them were in front of us - they started chasing the car like dogs - faster, faster, hurrry up, they are gaining - faster faster!!!!!!! Watch the curves in the road - stay away from the dike - faster, they are gaining on us!
Whewww, finally another car came along and stopped to look at them - Don't Stop!!!!! They'll get you - they are ferocious - they want to get in your car. They are attacking - they are trying to climb on top of the car (those talons could really mess up a paint job!) Oh well, that is not our worry - we are turkey free and continue on down the road, looking for Snow Geese and Trumpeter Swans. No one is going to believe this anyway!
