“The works of the LORD are great, Studied by all who have pleasure in them.” (Psalms 111:2 NKJV)
While updating our passes at Lowry Park Zoo last week, I found this startled “Turkey” insisting that he was not a “Turkey”
To me, he had wattles like a turkey!
Well, maybe it’s not a turkey after all. It is actually is a Guineafowl. Plus, they are not even in the same family.
Turkeys have to keep a low profile during the Christmas season as you have learned from several of Emma’s stories about the Commander Turkey. Reginald, Turkey Commander
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 1:18 NKJV)
Here are some of the decorations as you enter the zoo:
Pheasants and allies – Phasianidae
Reginald The Turkey Commander on Christmas
WOW! Those birds are colorful! But, about those wattles — I guess they think they are sporty or flamboyant, maybe even dignified! — but not being (that kind of) turkey, I wouldn’t know about what they think of their wattles.
