Clubhouse at Forest Park Nature Center

IMG_1337-1For years residents of Center Illinois, and in particular, Peoria Heights where the Center is located, have enjoyed quiet walks and all the wildlife that have found the Nature Center home.  My wife and I live, as the crow flies, about one mile dead west from the Nature Center.  Two of the major animal and bird families located at the Center are Turkeys and Deer.

Today my neighbor said, his neighbor one home up the street was amazed to look into his back yard and see wild turkeys.  Some on the ground and a least one on the roof of their outdoor storage shed.  We’ve all had deer roam through our yards but never turkeys until now…as far as I know.
