When I went to the recycle center a few days ago, I was waiting line and saw a turkey run across the road.  Yes.  A turkey.

When I asked the attendant about it, he said that the turkey has lived there all summer.  He’s named the turkey Pilgrim.

It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Pilgrim.  He chose to not strut and show off his tail feathers when I was looking.  That little brown thing to the right of his feet is a squirrel.

It’s a grainy shot.  I took it with my cell phone as I was hanging out the window of my parents’ truck.  I had parked the truck for a moment thinking I’d get out and walk closer to get a better photo, but Pilgrim was  getting nervous.  No animals or humans were harmed during the photographing of this turkey.
