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….
