    When I was young, seeing a turkey lek was a rare event—worthy of pulling over and watching for a longer look.

    Now they’re all over the place. In my neighborhood, turkeys occasionally get hit by cars during lekking season, and I frequently see a pair of Toms strutting on a narrow patch of grass in an industrial park.
