A Visit from a Wild Turkey

We’ve had a wild turkey visiting Cambridge Cohousing for the last three days.  One of my neighbors spotted it early Weds. morning, enjoying some bird seed under a bird feeder in the middle of our front lawn.  It’s now taken to wandering around our front lawn and patio, sitting in a large planter in front of our dining room – which does kind of look like exactly the right size for a turkey nest, now that I think about it!

These photos are by Richard Curran, a talented photographer who is also one of my Cambridge Cohousing neighbors.  (BTW, you can see more photos of his at the North Cambridge Open Studios this weekend.)

And a neighbor from next door came over and shot this short video of our wildlife star:

The turkey is not our only recent wildlife visitor.  I put my hand into a heath plant yesterday afternoon and surprised a small snake.  Last week, my husband surprised a possum in one of our compost bins.  Of course, in both cases, the surprise was mutual.
