In the spirit of the season I would like to send you a picture of the turkey I took at a Walnut Creek, Calif.,  Business Park near the John Muir Hospital. First my husband and I were surprised at where we found the birds. Then, I was astounded to discover that turkeys are not brown.  They are every color of the rainbow.  Fortunately I had a long lens on my camera and was able to get a close up of those great colors even though I could not get close to the birds.

    Beautiful – yes. But MESSY. We’ve got almost 40 turkeys that come through our yard at 7am each morning, and around 6pm each evening. They leave behind a trail of nasty droppings on our walkways, deck, picnic table… everywhere! The kids can’t play outside without an hour of clean-up first. Help! Any idea on who to contact to try to get this crew thinned down… a lot! We are down in San Jose, but hoping you might have some guidance.
