I Knew They Weren't Turkeys
Strolled down Church Street in the historic district of Old Salem, NC. No witches in sight. Four birds waddled out of nowhere, crossed the street, and bee-lined to a pile of corn kernels scattered in a front yard. A local later told me he’s heard of a gaggle of vagrant guinea hens in the neighborhood. He thought it was an urban legend.
