Wild Turkey Facing West

This  Wild Turkey shaped "perched" rock differs from a lot of other boulders dropped by the last glacier because of it's "perched" demeanor, and that it isn't buried as deeply in woodland debris.
About  3 feet tall, it stands on a large flat bolder, similar to the one in the right background.  If someone were to dislodge the several flat rocks propped against the downhill side,  it could easily be rolled  on down the hill.
