Yet, another unusual bird sighting Update May 8, 2017
One of my neighbor's took a photo of this "turkey" in their backyard.
What is going on? Pheasants and turkeys in Northgate Park? We are bordered by a creek and walking trails on one side of the community. Perhaps, this is why we are seeing them. I suspect that they are losing habitat somewhere else though. Below, is another neighbor's photo taken on May 6, 2017.
5 8 2017- The consensus on our neighborhood list serve is this isn't a wild turkey. It's more likely she is a Royal Palm Heritage breed, not used for meat, but insect control. Here's one more photo of her that was shared today. This will be my last turkey post, until we hear some good news. Hopefully, she will be reunited with her owner or adopted.
