Did you know that the wild turkey had vanished from Massachusetts by the 1850’s? The repatriation and their success in the 70’s and 80’s was due primarily to one man, Jim Cardoza from Mass Wildlife. He’s also the black bear expert for our state! I was able to get these great shots from the house of my friends Marla and Steve in Hadley, Mass. I had a cup of coffee and watched these beautiful birds, can there be a better morning than that?!
Have a great Thanksgiving, and remember the turkey!
