Turkey Crossing

I went to Trail Road looking for a wintering cowbird. Apparently people have been sprinkling birdseed at the landfill gates for him. I found this eating the seed instead!

Not a whole lot of meat on that one, is there?
Great shot though!

That's what female and juvenile Wild Turkeys generally look like, unless they're particularly well-fed (or maybe really cold!) The mature male in spring display fluffs and fans himself out and looks very plump, but this is more what you see when you just find a group of turkeys feeding in a field or along the road. They're much more lithe and limber than domestic turkeys. They can fly pretty well in fact.

Beautiful shot! I saw a group of turkeys there the last time I went. They weren't at the feeder area, but on the other side of the road behind a fence, too far to get any photos.
