WEST SEATTLE TURKEY: Still hanging out

11:31 AM: Going on a month and a half after we first started getting reports about, and photos of. The West Seattle Turkey, it’s still hanging out on the peninsula. The photos above and below were sent last night by Monica Zaborac.

And from a few days earlier, this photo’s from Jeremy Barnes:

Though the sightings started in April in southwest West Seattle and steadily moved north, then east, it has been consistently reported south/southeast of Admiral for a few weeks now. Still no hint of its origin. P.S. Thanks for the updates!

ADDED 1:30 PM: A photo from this morning, same general vicinity, courtesy of James Craig:

    My dog wants to chase him. We’ve seen him multiple times now just south of Hanford on 39th or 38th (can’t remember which street exactly)

    Am I wrong thinking it’s amazing no coyote has found this bird yet?  When I saw him a while back on SW Walnut, my thought was (please forgive me) “Thanksgiving Dinner in June!”

    Someone should design and sell a WS Turkey shirt. I’d buy it.
