The Boston Globe has noticed the increasing number of turkeys in the Brookline area. As I mentioned a while back, I’ve seen them a number of times in Brighton and in Newton. Surprisingly, the Globe article says that the Brookline police department sometimes gets a dozen complaints about the birds every day. They are an impressive sight—these giant birds that seem to come from nowhere—but calling the police seems excessive, especially since they seemed more skittish than scary to me.
