Male turkey acts as crossing guard to shield females from traffic

I came across this video of funny birds, but the video is remarkable because of the footage (0:52 to 1:20 mark) of a regal, male turkey protecting his family from motor traffic by acting as a crossing guard.

He stands in the middle of the road, using his body to block a row of three cars behind him, so that the other nine turkeys, one by one, could safely cross the road.

Only after the last turkey had crossed the road did the male leave his post.

This male turkey puts human males to shame….

“This male turkey puts human males to shame….” Some human males. The ones who are not honorable men but “myn”. A majority now, unfortunately

I see the male quail doing this in my back yard – keeping a lookout and protecting the females while they eat or dust bathe. What valiant little males!

Yes, well, I suspect that the female turkeys put human females to shame, in that they accept their subordinate role.

Some women accept the protective role that men offer.
