Urban Birding, er Turkeys

Spent the day at almost opposite ends of the Minneapolis Metro area, and still found wild turkeys at each site! The last few years has brought more and more sightings of turkeys in backyards. As more and more land is used for homes and businesses, the less there is for the turkeys were existed before. They have also become acclimated to a new food source - backyard bird feeders.

Also found one lone Trumpeter Swan in Bloomington. It is a little odd to find a single bird.
