Awkward Birds in the Wild

Although most birds are graceful, there are some birds that are just downright awkward. Even though turkeys and roosters can actually fly, they don’t do it very often and when they do, they don’t seem very comfortable. They spend most of their time on the ground with their heads bobbing back and forth to help balance out their bodies. There is a saying, “it is hard to soar like an eagle when you are surrounded by turkeys”. These birds are definitely interesting to watch, especially when you see them in the wild.
