New way for the T to boost ridership

Turkey on a car in Brookline

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:

I thought turkeys could fly.

So how did this one get onto the roof of a car?

Ha!

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.

I've seen them in the high branches. Don't recall seeing them actually in flight, however..hmmm.

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

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

They are not graceful when they land.

Some college students saw some turkeys flying over a dorm, although the fact that one turkey couldn't quite pull it off and crashed into the dorm was the more noteworthy part.

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.
