Thanksgiving (Wild) Turkey Memories

My Record column today: Wild Turkeys

   My birding column in The Record today is on Wild Turkeys in our region, and their amazing comeback.

   The link is here. I should note a boo-boo in the column. At one point I talk about wild turkeys running at speeds of up to 55 mph. They actually can run at speeds up to 20-25 mph -- which is still a lot faster than me.

   The Wild Turkeys in the photo are the pair that has been seen in Rutherford since this summer -- photo courtesy of Jaimie Winters of The South Bergenite.
