In case you thought the West Albany turkeys had left or moved somewhere else, here’s an update: They haven’t.
If anything, they have multiplied in place. Or so it seems.
On Tuesday afternoon, the flock numbered 17, according to my count. (Not all of them are pictured in the images here.) And they seemed to feel pretty much at home in the neighborhood just east of Broadway Street around 12th Avenue S.W.
The birds didn’t seem much bothered when a couple of kids came sailing down the street, one on a scooter and the other on a bike.
This being November, the question now is whether they’ll stick around for Thanksgiving to supply an element of live holiday decor. (hh)
