Good to see your turkeys in the wild, the ones in Australia reside at Parliament House.

Now that is funny.

That is one weird bird Bob. I think I appreciate them better from the distance. Those lovely feathers don't make up for that ugly mug.

Cool shot Bob! I wonder why they don't have feathers on their heads and necks. I read that with Turkey Vultures is is because they stick their heads in carrion, so they don't get dead stuff stuck to their face. Do Wild Turkey's eat carrion. I will have to look this up now. Inquiring minds want to know.

the closeup is of a female, it was very hot and I don't think she had her makeup on yet. The poor thing looked beat for sure.
