Wild turkeys are large, dark-colored birds with unfeathered heads. Hens have lighter colored heads while toms, or gobblers, (males) have bluish and reddish heads and red wattles on the throat with a "beard" that protrudes from the breast. Feathers may flash beautiful russet colors in sunlight.
Eastern broadleaf forest is preferred habitat in Minnesota, where they forage for insects and mast, such as acorns. Turkeys are, however, found in many different environments including arid forests as well.
