Mumbles the turkey

Mumbles was spotted perched above Elephant and Castle on Devonshire this afternoon.

Around 2:45 p.m., police cornered a turkey, presumably Mumbles, at Beach and Harrison in Chinatown. No immediate word on her fate, but some officers pondered whether stuffing and mashed potatoes would be involved.

Jocelyn spotted Mumbles the Turkey at State and Congress this morning, wondered which downtown tourist attraction she is headed for today - Faneuil Hall or the Freedom Trail?

Turkey at Rowes Wharf

Jpilz spotted the downtown turkey setting up housekeeping on a ledge at Rowes Wharf this evening. If only it were a duck, it could get a room and put it on its bill.

Speaking of the turkey, there's a move to name the turkey. Given the bird appeared just as the mayor was announcing his departure, how about Tom?

As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!

The turkey spotted on a fifth-floor ledge on Federal Street yesterday safely flew the coop. This morning, the Animal Rescue League of Boston reports, it was strutting its stuff near the Federal Reserve Bank on Atlantic Avenue (here it is trying to break into the bank). Around 2 p.m., it was still in the area, Jen Gray tweeted:

Turkey way over downtown

Turns out Mr. Carlson was right. Although it's a bit hard to tell in Dave's photo, that's a live turkey on a fifth-floor ledge at 133 Federal St. in the Financial District this morning.
