JackieHolmesBurns Wild Turkey
Wild Turkey commented on by JackieHolmesBurns Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, USA8 years ago

The bird on the right is a hen. The bird on the left is a tom or gobbler. He is strutting, a display to advertise himself as a fit mate

Nice photo. I love that wading birds are often photographed with their mirror image in the water.

The young are known as poults. Interestingly, there are five subspecies of wild turkey, four in the USA with one additional subspecies in Mexico Where these are, they would most likely be considered the Merriam's subspecies .

Unnamed spotting commented on by JackieHolmesBurns South Carolina, USA9 years ago

Beautiful A. piscivorus head study. I love the blockiness of the heads and the chocolate coloration. Color and pattern vary so much on this species, depending on the age of the snake, whether or not recently shed, whether or not wet. You should join our Under a Low Country Moon mission. We're focused on the Francis Marion National Forest, but are especially interested in low country snakes and are not limited to that location
