A Really Big Pigeon?

Ok, I'm so far behind on my blog posting.  I pretty much have no free time anymore, and I hate that.  I miss blogging so much.  I am trying to catch up on what's been going on in the past 2 months.  This happened on July 2nd!  July 2nd!! And I'm just getting around to writing about it now.  Oh well, better late than never, right? When I was going to lunch one day near my office in Battery Park, I saw a really big bird hanging out by the park.  I was like, "wow, that is one BIG pigeon!"
On closer inspection, I saw that it was a wild turkey!  How incredible is this? I've never seen a wild turkey in Manhattan before.  How cool!
I told my friends about it, and my friend Tom said the Turkey's name is Zelda. Apparently she's a long time resident of Battery Park.  The restauranteurs in the area named her.  They aren't quite sure how she got here exactly, maybe she flew in from Jersey, or maybe she took the ferry over from Staten Island. Haha, that would be my guess.


  1. Cool. We see them all the time around here, but we live in the country so that's not unusual for us.

  2. I saw Zelda back in February and took pics of her then and posted them to Facebook! Such a unique sight in Manhattan!
