More turkey sightings

Tom, here strutting his stuff, chased one too many joggers.

Three hens enjoy basking in the sun.

Plainfield Today reader Cynthia Alexander sends along some snaps of four turkeys, including a Tom, who decided they liked hanging out on her kitchen porch. This is in response to yesterday's post on a turkey sighting in Library Park (see here).

She says that though she never fed them, they often gathered on the fence. She also said the Tom was aggressive and liked to chase people who passed her Prospect Avenue home.

Sadly, she says, Tom met his end when he chased a jogger and was hit and killed by a car on Kensington Avenue.
