Patch reader Linda Adams spotted four wild turkeys "taking a stroll down Virginia Avenue about a block away from Knight Park" in Collingswood just before 8 a.m. Wednesday morning.

"It was an amazing sight to see, as a fellow mom and her two school-age boys also happened to catch a glimpse, along with me," she wrote in an email to Collingswood Patch.

They ultimately disappeared into another resident's backyard.

Pictures have been included with this post.

I have video showing a turkey in our back yard. And 'jive turkey' was a saying that became popular over 40 years ago…..I think it was made popular on the Flip Wilson Show.

There were 5 of them walking down our street in the HT extension on Saturday. They were having an easter egg hunt for the kids we thought the turkeys were going to make it down to, but they got scared when a family came out of their house and ran the other direction (towards Rt 130/Collings Ave)

Mike, it was the character of George Jefferson wearing his leisure suit and platform shoes (The Bunkers and Movin on up) that made that a hip saying way back in the early 70's . Flip had his hip hand shake back then.

Correct John….it was George Jefferson! Flip Wilson's famous line was "Here comes the judge".

You know Flip was a S. Jersey guy. Whitesboro NJ which is a small little town down along Rd 9 . Technically in Middle Twp. which is just out side of North Wildwood. Oprahs long time companion, Stedman Graham is also from there. Anyway Mike, do you remember Flips Famous hand shake? Slap, slap, elbow, elbow, hip,hip lol. Look it up.
