    On my way to work this morning, 7 wild turkeys crossed the 4 lane highway. They were smart though, it was right in front of the Eastham Police station.

    That is too funny! I had that happen once with deer - they would not leave and ate my entire garden in three days.

    Wow, funny! I thought I lived in wild turkey central: on the border of a national park with a landscape of woods and meadows, perfect turkey territory and on top of that, the lady next door leaves food out for them. But even with all that, the turkeys are shy and don't get close to our houses. We only see them from a distance. I'd freak out if I looked out my window and saw turkeys swarming my porch. That's just bizarre.

    I had my Royal Palm on the porch today, pecking the door so I would come out and feed them. I have two domesticated Rio Grande turkeys in my flock. Nope, they aren't scared of much, except of being touched. I tell people all the time when they're in a group, they're like a bunch of bad preschoolers, into everything!
