Renee Graham went out to her Coolidge Corner driveway this afternoon, only to be confronted with this situation:

Guess I'll take the T tonight...

Not long after, though, the bird flew the, um, coupe:

    Actually, turkeys can fly a bit. I used to have a yard with lots of trees, and the turkeys would fly into the lower branches and hang out. It was always disconcerting; they really don't look like they belong in trees at all.

    Have definitely seen them fly. Very noisy, not graceful, but competent fliers. I think mostly in short bursts.

    They can fly

    I've had them roosting in my trees, maybe thirty feet up.

    They are not graceful when they land.

    I watched a coyote come around the corner of the house across the street and surprise a turkey early one morning. The turkey flew straight up into a big oak tree and landed about 60 feet off the ground.
