Berkeleyside’s wild turkey watch continues.

According to Neil Mishalov, who took this photo, we see here a mature female turkey taking a flock of turkey poults on a feeding expedition on Cornell Avenue near Hopkins Street on Saturday, July 13.

Unless we’re mistaken, there are at least 14 baby turkeys taking a stroll here. That’s quite a responsibility, especially on busy city streets. Still, mama turkey doesn’t look perturbed. All in a day’s work, we assume.
