My mom used to sing me this song around Thanksgiving time and it stuck with me after all these years. It went like this:

A turkey sat on a barnyard fence as he sang this sad, sad tune
Thanksgiving day is coming, gobble gobble gobble gobble, and I will be eaten soon
Gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble, as he cried the day away
Gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble, I don't like Thanksgiving day

That's some dark stuff right? I couldn't help but think of that song when I saw this photo. Mel Amato shared it on the ulocal New Hampshire Facebook page with the caption "Traffic jam in the driveway this morning"

Since it's 2020 I think these turkeys met up to protest Thanksgiving. It's about time their gobbles are heard!

The comments section of this post had me in stiches. Here is what the people are saying:

Elizabeth Doolittle Carberry: Last call at the bar!

Barbara J Reid: The great escape! They’re hiding out until after Black Friday

Yvette Desmarais: They are getting rather plump. Must be all the acorns. Your boys are showing off.

If you have been seeing more turkeys than normal lately, that is because the turkey population has been on the rise for quite sometime.

According to WMUR, we have an estimated population of 40,000 turkeys in New Hampshire.
