Wild Turkeys

Meleagris gallopavo


A group of ten turkeys hanging out and foraging in a suburban area. They crossed the road in a line and stopped traffic! One was white, with only a little bit of darker coloring. Does anyone know why?


Stopped in suburbs, where others say they have seen them often. Some residents regard them as a nuisance. There are a couple regional parks nearby, including Del Valle, which has lots of turkeys.

The white one is leucistic, just means that it lacks some darker pigmentation. Cool find!
