For all of our wild turkey information (not to be confused with our Wild Turkey imbibition) we naturally head to What About the Plastic Animals?, a surprisingly strong resource for sightings of live animals. Last fall we got a glimpse of Battery Park's Zelda, and now we have this unidentified bird way up in Morningside Park. A reader on WAtPA? responds to confusion and answers the call for additional information:
As far as I know the turkey is a very recent arrival to the park. I first heard reports of sitings this week and these are the first photos I've seen. Between the turkey, the peacocks at the Cathedral and the Red Tailed Hawks who have a nest on one of the statues at the East end of the Cathedral, our neighborhood has quite a bit of unusual wildlife!Don't forget about the Columbia undergrads!
