It was the last hurrah for a gang of turkeys roaming Brookline early Wednesday morning.

The indiginous birds frolicked in leaves and soaked in every last ounce of freedom as they prepared to go from woodland wanderers to the plates of hungry Americans for the annual Thanksgiving feast Thursday.

Just kidding — these birds will stay right where they belong: in the wild.

Americans will consume more turkey on Thursday than any other day of the year. Most people will be indulging in fattened-up, farm-raised birds courtesy of their local supermarket.
