Wild Turkey Seen in Rutherford

   Joe Barnaskas of Rutherford called to say he saw a huge Wild Turkey hen with a baby in his backyard last week.
   "To see a Wild Turkey, especially one that size, down here is really something," said Joe.
    The first record of Wild Turkey in the Meadowlands in recent memory was during an avian study done here a few years back.
A link to a South Bergenite story on the study, mentioning the previous rarity of Wild Turkeys, is here.
