Quite a few weeks for wildlife in the District – snakes falling from trees (twice!), red pandas on the lam, bears on the parkways and now wild turkeys?

“@PoPville Cool! A wild turkey (I think) in a tree in my backyard. #16thStHeights”

UPDATE: ‏@timreedjr spotted the wild turkey walking down Kennedy Street too:


Update: Another reader emails the wild turkey strutting around Adams Morgan on California St. NW between 18th and 19th:
