This ain’t your Thanks­giv­ing din­ner! A fear­less wild turkey strut­ted her stuff across Man­hat­tan this week, dodg­ing traf­fic and chill­ing in trees.

The adven­tur­ous bird spent Tues­day and Wednes­day for­ag­ing in the con­crete jun­gle near 49th and Madi­son, leav­ing New York­ers gob­bling with sur­prise (and delight!).

“This chick­’s a total boss,” says one bird­watch­er who filmed her. “She flies like a champ and knows how to sur­vive!” Appar­ent­ly, this feath­ered explor­er first showed off her mad skills in Long Island City before tak­ing a three-mile cruise across the East Riv­er. Talk about a wild ride! ⛎

Despite not being a long-dis­tance fly­er, our turkey hero­ine some­how land­ed in Mid­town, casu­al­ly nav­i­gat­ing busy cross­walks near a con­struc­tion site. This city life ain’t faz­ing her!

“Traf­fic’s a risk, but she’s side­walk-savvy,” says the bird­watch­er. “Maybe she needs a taxi to Cen­tral Park for some snacks?”

Experts think she might have crossed the Queens­boro Bridge or used Roo­sevelt Island as a rest stop. Once in the Big Apple, she enjoyed some blue­ber­ries from kind restau­rant staff and even took a relax­ing bath! đŸ«

At sun­set, she soared into a tree for a peace­ful night’s sleep. This turkey’s got NYC liv­ing fig­ured out!

“She’s chill and way less grumpy than most turkeys,” says the bird­watch­er. “A real treat for New York­ers to see some wild side!” It’s a beau­ti­ful reminder that nature can still find a home in the city that nev­er sleeps. 
