Oh dear, more Tosa Turkey drama!

Here in my old-school Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa the turkey drama continues. Now the flocks are dogging delivery trucks and pestering/threatening delivery drivers. I remember watching aggressive peacocks at the zoo about this time of year when my kids were little. The only time I’ve ever seen so many peacock tail feathers in full NBC “living color” spread, like little satellite dishes surrounding the poor beleaguered females. Mating season, apparently. Could that be what’s happening with the turkeys right now? Or are they finally beginning to recognize their collective power and assert new dominance over their Tosa dominion? Here’s a link to a local television news story.

    Wow! Around here they’re considered elusive and wily birds. I’ve only ever seen two or three in the decades I’ve lived here. OTOH, the Canadian Geese are a bit of a plague. Lots of goose poop in parks and large grassy areas.
