Wild Turkeys at Zion National Park

Since wild turkeys were introduced to Zion National Park, they have proliferated and done very well. We frequently have them visit our cabin and wander through on their way down the draw to Lemon Springs. They are goofy looking critters with big helmet shaped bodies and an ungainly walk. Their feathers are big enough to make a headdress out of, and my grandkids love to find them. Benjamin Franklin said he thought they would have made a more appropriate national bird than the Bald Eagle.
