How cool — a wild turkey has been making spotted appearances in the heart of Manhattan, much to the delight of residents and confusion of ornithologists. One sighting was even on a 28th-story balcony, amazing given that turkeys aren’t very good at tackling vertical distance. And people say that you need to leave New York City to find the great outdoors… (Thanks to Noah for the link!)


My out-of-the-ordinary bird siting of just from a few days ago. I need to update the page — a bird-watching friend identified the critter as a Eurasion Kestrel.
