Best Special Day Made Even More Special

Patricia and I met 10 years ago Wednesday...we think...and it was so snowy that day. Friday we had a good, solid snow so Patricia and I took a commemorative anniversary snow walk through Battery Park.

 Everything was nice and lovely and then I saw something that I only barely dreamed I might see.

The famous and mysterious Wild Turkey of Battery Park! And on a snow day!

If you're not sure if you've ever seen me when I was real happy, I suggest you see me when I run into the wild turkey of Battery Park.

I wonder what it's like to be the wild turkey of battery park. Do you think he wonders where all the other turkeys are?

ADDENDUM: A little Googling can teach you so much about that turkey.  Like that he's a girl, he's named Zelda, and he's very old.

I went for a run mid-February with Scout and saw all these gigantic chicken foot prints in the snow. I kept wondering what was going on and then I ran up a hill and into a crowd of wild turkeys. Scout was probably about as happy as you were.
