Birds- On the top!

When I see this heron standing on top of this tree, I remember a management lesson. Funny which I read on internet (Link).

A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey,  "but I haven't got the energy." Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients.". The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who promptly shot the turkey out of the tree. 

Management Lesson: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there for long.

Ha ha ... but, this bird was safe in the Shark Valley area of Everglades National Park, Florida!

    1. Well, you have seen herons on the top but, not turkeys! Not sure if you were offended by the funny story ... it has nothing to do with birds, something to do with corporate life! :)
