Fun fact: turkeys DO fly. They roost in trees overnight. :)

Indeed. I’ve seen it before.

They look like a flying bowling ball

And they act like it too. Clumsily crashing through branches, etc.

Some birds fly gracefully, like ballerinas dancing on the air.


Then there are turkeys.

Cute, but terrifying. Boston turkeys always want to fight, even when you’re minding your own business.

I’ve encountered them before walking to a bakery and all they did was confuse me and another passerby. They never bother me.

They waited surrounding my car and wouldn’t move for awhile. Another chased me across the street and only stopped until I dropped my food.

These right here are terrace turkeys. They terrorize and harass across the Commonwealth. You may think the Canadian geese are a blight and nuisance along the rivers and fresh water bodies until you have an erect turkey tom following your shadow at an ever quickening pace.

If you're cold, they're cold. Bring them in

Cummings Road. Saw turkeys there cause traffic jams because they refused to move out of people's drive ways.

Same — I would also see them fly down to the forest on the other side of the street, was always crazy to see.

Saw a whole bunchof them today at the corner of Comm Ave and Chiswick. (I was delivering a package to 1810 Comm Ave). These were the ones that crossed Comm Ave.. There were still like another 10-12 on the other side of Comm Ave...

Lived there 20 years ago. Wow time flies!

I still don't get why this sub has this disturbing fetish with turkeys. Have people never seen wild turkeys before?


lostlittledoggy t1_ja40u01 wrote

I have seen many but I never saw them waltzing along packed city sidewalks, waiting at stoplights and riding on top of mail trucks until I moved to Boston. They're very integrated into civil society here. In fact, my last uber driver was a wild turkey.

probably because wild turkeys don’t envelope many major metropolitan areas
