Turkey Turkey Turkey

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and got to relax with friends or family.

Okay, I know it’s Thanksgiving, and by the time you read this you’ll probably be sick to death of turkey, but I like to beat a dead horse (who doesn’t?).

You know, growing up in and around Boston, the only wild animals that I was used to seeing were pigeons, squirrels and the occasional crow, seagull or songbird.  Once I saw a pheasant, and I almost jumped out of the school bus.  I wondered if I was imagining things?

Maybe I just led a sheltered youth?  Or is the wildlife returning?  These days I live less than a mile from Boston, and I see deer, foxes, chipmunks, hawks, raccoons, skunks, and turkeys.  Lots of turkeys.  I saw twelve at one time, just down the road.

Here are a couple views of the hideously ugly birds at the nearby Blue Hills Trailside Museum.

At work, just a quarter-mile from a very busy suburban shopping center, I have seen snapping turtles, rabbits and turkeys.  And moose and bears have been spotted nearby, too…

Here are some views of the turkey that staked out our workplace a couple years ago.  I wish I had seen the bird on top of Lee G’s minivan.

Why did the turkey cross the road?

Run, turkey, run!
