While in the deepest, most rural regions of Virginia, we came across a species of bird new to us. Some sort of turkey on steroids, it is called a Hokie bird. Beloved by the natives, it is cheered on by the local populace, and it’s war cry is imitated by thousands. I hear there is a place in it’s nest for a trophy.
This is an example of one we found in Blacksburg. [ the one on the left is a Hokie, the one on the right I am still figuring out after 21 years] There must be some sort of infectious nature to it all, as I find myself cheering for a guy named Tyrod, respecting a fellow named Beamer, and saying “Go Hokies!” I have yet to gobble, but as the condition advances it may become irresistible.
