Wait for me, wait for me,

Wait for me, wait for me,, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr.
While going along one of the trails at Rondeau Provincial Park we came across a flock of turkeys.
As we got closer they moved away but one lagged behind.
When it realized it was separated from its fellows it half flew, half ran to catch up.

Scientific stuff
Meleagris gallopavo
The Wild Turkey and the Muscovy Duck are the only two domesticated birds native to the New World.
When they need to, Turkeys can swim by tucking their wings in close, spreading their tails, and kicking.
