Turkey porn

It stinks
This message was posted on the Boston Birds google group:

Hello All,

We had another turkey join the rafter that has been hanging around the Mass
Audubon Boston Nature Center. It is another Hen, which brings us to one
adult Tom, one first year Tom, and 4 Hens! Also this morning,
we had the opportunity to watch the adult Male copulate with one of the
females. A truly interesting experience which took 8 minutes from the time
he mounted her. Most of that time was spent positioning his feet in the
"crotch" of the hens wings. It appeared that the Tom was trying to separate
the wings for access. Then when he finally had her wings apart she raised
her tail showing a dramatically engorged cloaca. Instantly the Tom swept
his fan to the side and finished the job in about 3-5 seconds at which point
he stepped off of her back and resumed his display!

Not romantic in human sense but apparently effective given current turkey
population trends!

Yeah, there something about one hole serving all those functions that is just kind of gross. Doesn't seem really sanitary either...

Damn, I'm around turkeys all day and I've never seen that. I should work less and watch turkeys more.

Here is a link to some images of turkeys, including a couple of good shots of fornicating turkeys, that I captured a couple of weeks ago:
