A Waukesha, Wisconsin mail carrier has an avian admirer.

Jeff Byrne said a wild turkey has been following him on his route in and around Takoma Drive in Waukesha since the summer.


Byrne said he tried to shoo the bird away at first, but now he's pretty much used to it.

"It's Thanksgiving. I can't say he's annoying," Byrne said. "Too close to his holiday."
