Let's Talk Turkey
Wild Turkeys are not native to Newfoundland but have been showing up in the Codroy Valley over recent years. It is a bit of a mystery about how they got here but word is that they are reproducing and becoming more common. Some speculate that they are descendants of domestic turkeys that were released into the wild. However, the ones in Codroy do not look like this domestic Turkey. I think this is a Broad-breasted Bronze Turkey.
This little female was working so hard to find an opening in the fence to move into the field with the male. We were assured that these two turkeys would never make it to the table.
