A Mother Turkey Defends Her Brood Against a Red-Tailed Hawk [VIDEO]

This mother turkey knows something’s up there and it’s hungry.

Nothing says “don’t mess with me” like a mother defending her young.

This hen seems content enough until an uninvited guest shows up for lunch.

 

She doesn’t mind losing a few tail feathers to take care of business, does she?

It didn’t seem like the hawk was successful this time around, but a lesson well learned for this group of turkey poults.
