Wildlife Trek

I posted this at my dailymile site, but thought I'd share it here too.

Wild Turkey

Tonight on my daily walk I spotted this guy in the freshly harvested wheat field across the road from my house.  He spotted me long before I spotted him and tried to run away and hide.  I was surprised at how fast he was running, so I did a little googletastic fun and learned that wild turkeys can run at about 25mph, according to this site.  I'm going to start calling this my Wildlife Trek instead of my after dinner walk.  I just hope I don't run into a hungry coyote or an annoyed skunk.
