Turkey Spotting in Bloomfield

Did you see the turkey too? Leave your observations in the comments section.

One of the elusive Bloomfield turkeys was spotted taking a stroll down Broad Street, near Huck Road, this afternoon. Chances are the nonchalant bird was enjoying the sunny, warm weather just as much as us humans are.

Turkeys have been spotted in Newark too on Mount Prospect Avenue. Link here: http://www.nj.com/news/ledger/jersey/index.ssf?/base/news-13/1237698930222630.xml&coll=1 Turkeys in Michigan have become a growing problem because they have become over-aggressive wild fowl.

I can't resist. Another turkey in the suburbs story here from Natl Geo: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/11/071119-wild-turkeys.html Pretty nifty.

The guy in front of the tree was visiting my house , on Ferncliff, over the weekend. Unfortunately at the time there were a number of garage sales going on and every car that drove by our house had to stop to take a picture. Massive traffic jam. Saw the same wild turkey running along side of a couple of joggers on Monday. The joggers were so excited about it one of them jogged themselved into the back of a car.

@Sandra, awesome story about the jogger and the turkey. I am glad nobody has messed with them.
