Apparently wild turkeys can fly. I saw it finally for the first time and this is my photographic proof and sequel on the sighting of wild turkeys in Aurora. I came back to see them the next day. I never got close to them, as interestingly enough, they kept moving away with every step I made towards them. They are definitely living a cautious life out there in a semi-wild land.
“Wild Turkeys Can Fly”
While there at the St. John’s sideroad and Leslie Street area on January the 1st, sunny and cold day, I looked around again. It is unbelievable how much it changed in a two year time; and this is only the beginning for this intersection. Soon the horses will go.
Not sure if you know, but there are plans for a St.John’s sideroad Highway 404 interchange East of Leslie Street. Believe it or not that will help the “Welcome To Aurora” sign on Highway 404 North at Aurora Rd/Wellington St E ramp to be more effective. Currently, if you drive by the welcome sign you already missed the last exit to Aurora.
“Turkeys are an ungainly mess of a bird. Their bodies appear too big for their scrawny legs, and they are pocked with all manner of bizarre anatomical structures, including snoods (fleshy bumps on their foreheads) and a dewlap (that distinctive flappy wattle under its neck). But amazingly, the bird — at least in its wild form — can fly.” Read more: In its wild form, that funny looking turkey can fly. Though it won’t get very far.
