Wild turkey pre-running Bloomsday course

WILDLIFE WATCHING -- I'm a little late getting into the office today, distracted by a wild turkey crossing in front of the S-R building and heading west on Riverside Ave., across Monroe Street -- traffic kindly giving it the right of way in a Spokane-friendly way.

It's a hen, gently yelping occasionally, seemly looking for love in all the wrong places.  It continued out Riverside when I realized it seemed to be checking out the Bloomsday course.

Last day to register for Bloomsday without a late fee is April 12.

First day of the spring wild turkey hunting season is Saturday for kids and April 15 for everybody else.
