Michigan Postcard: Turkeys Show up Early for Thanksgiving

A tom and hen visit a Rochester Hills home – for dinner?

Wild turkeys are common sight throughout Michigan, one that Rochester Hills resident Ruthann Bajorek welcomes.

"One of the joys of living in Rochester Hills is the easy access to wildlife – though not always a blessing," Bajorek said. "These turkeys apparently misunderstood when we said we were having turkey for Thanksgiving. They showed up in our yard a little early for Thanksgiving dinner.
