[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is native to North America and is the heaviest member of the diverse Galliformes. It is the same species as the domestic turkey, which was originally derived from a southern Mexican subspecies of Wild Turkey (not the related Ocellated Turkey). Although native to North America, the turkey probably got its name due to the domesticated variety being imported to Britain in ships coming from the Levant via Spain. The British at the time therefore, associated the Wild Turkey with the country Turkey and the name stuck

Hello Mike,
This is one bird that has eluded my lens so far. I did capture some Goulds Turkey out in Arizona, but have never photographed an Eastern bird.
Both birds look to be in good condition and will hopefully make it through the Winter in fine shape. Well done!!
