Thanks For the Turkeys

Turkey hen

Happy Thanksgiving! It's quite a trick to photograph wild turkeys here--they have sharp ears and sharper eyes, and they move really fast when spooked. Evidently, though, wild turkeys have gone suburban in Yankeeland, and suburbanite people are finding them a nuisance. National Geographic published an article earlier this week: Wild Turkeys Invading Suburban U.S. Wild turkeys have actually been spotted in Manhattan.

I concur. The behavior of those suburban turkeys isn't anything like that of their Ozark cousins. It's hard to imagine turkeys becoming that "tame".
