2014 GW Birthday Classic in Alexandria, Virginia

Wild Turkey Alexandria Virginia

One of our Facebook followers spotted this wild turkey off Eisenhower Avenue behind the AWLA Animal Shelter in Alexandria, Virginia earlier this week. It is unclear whether this is the same wild turkey spotted wandering the streets of Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia and Del Ray earlier this month.

We understand Animal Control officers previously relocated the bird spotted earlier this month to a heavily-wooded area in the National Cemetery area where it first was spotted.
