Turkey perch

Per our recent discussion on turkeys, there were two rather large ones in the woods right off my deck tonight. While I was grilling right around sunset I heard a small commotion and saw one of them perched in the trees. He stayed on that branch for several minutes before flying off to another tree across the street.

First time I've ever seen one in flight.

It was Carlson.

Mr.Carlson, having emerged from the helicopter covered in turkey feathers exclaims "As God as my witness I thought turkeys could fly".

Relive the magic:

Les Nessman: I'm here with hundreds of people who have gathered to witness what has been described as perhaps the greatest turkey event in Thanksgiving Day history. All we know for sure is that in a very few moments there are going to be a lot of happy people out here. Now the crowd is...

[passers-by gawk at Les]

Les Nessman: The... the crowd is uh... curious but well behaved. And I think I hear something now. Uh... The crowd is moving out into the parking area. And... oh yes! I can see it now. It's a... it's a... helicopter and it's coming this way!

Andy Travis: A helicopter?

Les Nessman: It's flying something behind it and I can't quite make it out. It's a large banner and it says H A P P Y... T H A N K S... giving... from W... K... R... P! What a sight, ladies and gentlemen. What a sight. The 'copter seems to circling the parking area now. I guess it's looking for a place to land. No! Something just came out of the back of a helicopter. It's a dark object, perhaps a skydiver plummeting to the earth from only two thousand feet in the air... There's a third... No parachutes yet... Those can't be skydivers. I can't tell just yet what they are but... Oh my God! They're turkeys! Oh no! Johnny can you get this? Oh, they're crashing to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! This is terrible! Everyone's running around pushing each other. Oh my goodness! Oh, the humanity! People are running about. The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Folks, I don't know how much longer... The crowd is running for their lives. I think I'm going to step inside. I can't stand here and watch this anymore. No, I can't go in there. Children are searching for their mothers and oh, not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been anything like this. I don't know how much longer I can hold my position here, Johnny. The crowd...

Dr. Johnny Fever: Les? Les? Les, are you there? Les isn't there. Thanks for that on-the-spot report, Les. For those of you who've just tuned in, the Pinedale Shopping Mall has just been bombed with live turkeys. Film at eleven.

Turkey Perch?

Is that anything like Chicken of The Sea?



What kind of lure do you use for it?

The beauty of that scene is that they made no attempt, other than a few sound effects, to try to actually depict the turkey disaster. All the comedy is derived from Nessman's description of the scene.

About ten years ago I was walking the dog along a park trail that crossed a small creek bed.
The commotion was very startling as a full grown turkey instantly launched out of the creek bed straight up into the trees up to about fifty feet above me. I had no idea any bird so big could get up in the air so fast.
