The Art of Being a Turkey

Turkeys are the "new" tame bird of the Twin Cities suburbs.
Like the Canada goose, turkeys are being found everywhere
and are not shy about appearing in one's backyard.
Turkeys imported from Missouri were used to reintroduce turkeys back to Minnesota almost 40 years ago and most of today's birds are from that successful attempt.
With their funny shape, bizarre colors and quizzical nature,
turkeys can be interesting to watch.

Turkeys will fly into trees to escape danger and roost at night.

Turkey in abstract-
actually preening.

This turkey is going out on a limb to make friends
in the wildhood.


Whoa, dude-
