I love living in Westfield for many reasons: one of the most important is the wildlife I see on a regular basis. My family loves to spy foxes, swans, beavers, and wild turkeys. We especially love wild turkeys.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I encountered the fine specimen pictured below. He is not a wild turkey - I'm pretty sure he escaped from the farm near where I was driving. We never did see the object of his affection, but we stopped for a few minutes to admire his strutting and gobbling.
Admittedly, the weather has not felt very spring-like, but that didn't seem to bother this guy. I know my children have been anxious to be outside in the warm spring sun, so here's to a fine Easter weekend and warmer weather just around the corner!
