Laura Kollett spotted these two turkeys this morning atop a house on South Street in Roslindale, near the train station.
Meanwhile, Jeff Sullivan shows us a more grounded turkey, in a parking lot off Truman Parkway and Fairmount Avenue in Hyde Park:
up on a roof!
Watching, judging, waiting.....
Said I, in scorn all burning hot,In rage and anger high,"You ignominious idiot,Those wings are made to fly!"
The moment hunting season opens they disappear.
The flocks here on the North Shore will rest in the trees, although it seems to be a destination for the evening. They don't seem to use the trees even when they're startled, but not many domestic animals seem to phase them.
This never isn't funny.
Farm turkeys tend to be a lot fatter and have trouble flying. And it's not like turkeys are great at flying to begin with, just good enough to get on the roof of a house.
I saw one fly across six lanes of Route 3 once.
It could be a re- enactment commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising.
