Protective turkey mom senses danger and goes immediately into action. Listen closely for the sound she makes to alert her chicks something might be wrong.
The family is out for a stroll, pecking on some snacks left by their friendly human neighbor Tara Dodd when all of a sudden, mommy turkey senses something is wrong. She makes a subtle call in her throat and, whoosh, her babies dive for the tall grass at the side of the road.
The moment is short, and eventually, she gives the all-clear and lets her babies know everything is fine and they go on their way. But their reaction to her danger call was immediate and impressive. We’ve never heard a sound like it, but it definitely sounds like a mom protecting her babies.
