Turkeys show up for first day of classes

A half dozen wild turkeys appeared to be seeking entrance to Mary Ann Cofrin at 7 a.m. Monday, June 24, the first day of classes for the main summer session. (Note that the two birds in the photo at right seem to be checking out a view of the Gathering Room or perhaps the MAC Hall atrium.) Brad Drephal, a student building manager for the University Union next door, snapped these photos on his way to work. The small flock retreated when Drephal stepped closer.
