Urban Turkeys
A wild turkey flies up to it's evening roost, a tree in the front yard of Mary Jane Froese's parents, on Staten Island, Monday, Nov. 11, 2013, in New York. The turkey belongs to a population of roving turkeys that has become a mess-making, traffic-stopping scourge to some residents, an unexpected bit of makeshift nature to others and a fraught project for government officials. Since dozens of the turkeys were rounded up and killed this summer, the birds’ future has become as a topic as heated as a Thanksgiving meat thermometer. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
