Wild Turkey on the Loose

Spotted: a gobbler wandering around Rosslyn. We've known wild turkeys were along the Potomac, but in Rosslyn? Really? Looks like our environmental stewardship is working! Thanks to our Natural Resources team and the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, our gobbler friend is home safe in his natural environment. (That's him on the left in transport.)
