Martin Schweig sent an email a short time ago that included these amazing photos. Martin said, "Here is a FIRST! Five wild turkeys walking around Pershing Place in front of 4505."

Thanks for sending the photos Martin. I would love to know how the turkeys may have found their way this far into populated territory.

Later this evening from Martin: Nicki, While turkeys would rather walk than fly, one would hope that they took wing over Kingshighway. Someone who just moved onto the street said that the turkeys had spent the morning in her backyard.  I am sure that these birds are the same ones that have been seen on Westmoreland so it seeems like they like private places!!!"

    Martin’s photos are GREAT. My kids and I encountered them on our late afternoon walk and wanted to send you my photos but they were soooo dark. I was intrigued, Margot was ecstatic and Rory amused!

    I bet these are the same turkeys we saw on Westmoreland just before Thanksgiving. I wonder where they are living in between their appearances on the residential streets.

    Loved seeing those photos.
    Turkeys are amazing critters. We’ve watched them for years at our farm. You see them when they want you to see them. When they don’t want you to see them (as when a hen is on a nest), they can make themselves absolutely invisible. Marvelous creatures!
