|Today's turkey selfie.|
Through the Turkeys of Madison, WI Facebook group, I watched their travels and learned about their favorite local places. It was in this group where I learned that the turkeys are fond of the drive thru at the Schenk's Corners branch of Monona State Bank. When I passed the bank on my way home today, there they were: the fab 4 in all their glory.
I wasn't the only person who stopped to photograph the birds. I may have been the only one to take 34 photos, though. I'll take you through some highlights (click photos to enlarge):
|The fab 4 took a leisurely walk to the bank drive thru.|
|They did some preening, strutting, and fluffing.|
|There wasn't enough excitement at the bank, so they headed into the street.|
|An ambulance came and they refused to move. Sirens and horns meant nothing to the turkeys.|
|Then, the traffic came.|
|And the traffic stopped.|
|And a kind civilian shooed the turkeys out of the way.|
|Nice guy. All the turkeys made it safely to the sidewalk.|
I really couldn't have asked for a better first turkey encounter. Hopefully I will see them more often, take more photos with them, and capture video footage of local gobbling. This city is weird.
