Fort Worth "River Turkeys"

 The Fort Worth Weekly has the "scoop" on the dirty birds we mentioned back when the Woodshed opened.  An employee advises how to get a free meal. Though they didn't mention who cleans the pooh off the furniture.  As appetizing as all that is, we'll grab dinner elsewhere.

Turns out cattle egrets aren’t the only protected migratory birds causing problems for Fort Worth residents. Across the Trinity River from Woodshed Smokehouse, off South University Drive, is a vast network of cormorant nests.

The cormorants are also unflattering called “river turkeys.”

“They’re very fond of pooping,” a restaurant employee told Static.

The birds mostly keep away from the restaurant but, “If their poop ever lands on a customer’s plate, then we replace it for free,” the employee said. “They can be a little bit of an annoyance.
