So, I'm out running errands with the kids this afternoon. My 8 year old decides she needs to ask me a question. "Mom?, How can turkeys hear us blink?" Um, What??
I thought I was losing it and asked her to repeat herself. Yup, that is definitely what she said. That's a new one! I just told her they must have really good hearing. I hadn't the slightest idea where she got that until she explained to my husband later in the day that that is what the kids in her class who go hunting with their dads told her.
So there you have it. Next time you are sneaking up on a turkey, be sure NOT to blink!! They'll hear you coming!
