Wild Turkey Visits Bluewing Court in Janesville, Wisconsin

Earlier today while in my bedroom, I heard a loud thump against the roof in that corner of the house. Thinking that the house had been hit by falling space junk, I raised the blinds to discover a large and somewhat dazed wild turkey in the backyard. I grabbed my camera and ran to the backyard as the turkey rounded the corner of a neighbor’s house. I followed and found the turkey trying repeatedly to get into the neighbor’s house through the front door which was closed. Every time he tried to get in, he made a loud thump against the door. The neighbors never came to the door. They were either not at home or they were hiding in an upstairs bedroom, lest the turkey gain entrance to their foyer. Finally, the turkey gave up and retreated toward the woods at the end of the street.

I’m surprised that a turkey flew onto the roof of my house. I’ve seen many wild turkeys, but not once have I seen one fly.
