MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The construction crews along Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis were not the only thing people were stopping to watch Tuesday.

WCCO Photojournalist Melissa Martz spotted a turkey poking around outside WCCO’s Nicollet Mall studio.

We’re guessing he came from the Mississippi River, but we aren’t sure why the bird wandered so far into downtown.

Perhaps he wanted to go on a stroll on this #Top10WXDay!

  1. Too bad they don’t have any cameras at WCCO. They could have put a picture of the turkey on the website.
