Wild Turkey

Meleagris gallopavo

Description:

This fella is a male turkey also known as a tom. You tell its a male by the red and blue colors on its head and neck. Also look closely at the center of his chest and you will see a tuft of hair which are modified feathers that resemble a long skinny beard.
