I’m used to seeing this type of Wild Turkey in my hood:
But I was in Ft. Dupont Park in Southeast DC this afternoon and I saw these actual wild turkeys. I was buggin’.
I couldn’t believe my eyes. I mean granted, it is the Monday after Thanksgiving so maybe they thought it was safe to come out of hiding because the coast was clear, but what the hell are they doing in the city in the first place?!?!? Somebody needs to tell them Fort Dupont Park might not be the best place to hide out if they’re trying to avoid getting shot.
Better bammas than them have played and lost at that game.
One of my neighbors said that the the first time he saw them he thought he was tripping so hard he was scared to mention it to anyone. Hahaha. I didn’t know if they were dangerous or what, so I did a little research. Of course by “did a little research,” I mean “posted a Facebook status asking if they were dangerous.”
Let’s just say that based on the answers I got I decided to get back in the car and go home! But not before I had a little photo shoot…
Say cheese, jive turkeys!
Yeah, I really typed that.

No really!! You have no idea how much I obviously needed to come by and read your blog today! I might be laughing all weekend at the image of wild turkeys trying to “hide out” in SE DC only to discover that survival ain’t a game!
