An unusual visitor

If someone came up to you on April Fool’s Day and told you they saw a wild turkey on the the front porch of the rectory, you’d probably think they were playing a trick on you, BUT it’s true!  Our secretary opened the front door to check the mail and low and behold, there was a great big bird sitting on the steps.  She screamed in surprise, the bird jumped off the porch and began to stroll down 17th St.  Fortunately, we had a camera handy and captured these pictures as it walked 17th St. and then into the fenced in area at the far end of the property.  A check on the internet identified it as a wild turkey.  Every day brings new surprises!
