Turkey sightings

To the Editor,
In response to P.S. Wood’s inquiry about the flock of turkeys on the West Side, we can report that they have been marching through our yard over the last week near Franklin Swamp, including the gimpy one who valiantly trails the group. Last summer during our family jogs via West Side Road, Cooneymus and Old Mill, we frequently saw the gang hopping over walls and dashing through fields, always trailed by the same courageous and challenged bird. Sometimes we would see them twice on our loop. Either they were faster than us, or had some very clever shortcuts.
