Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo)
Handsome he's NOT! Wild turkeys are hungry this year and, in some areas, acting quite bold looking for food, which means it was EASY for me to get close enough to take photos.
Feathers on back of neck in sunlight
While his face is quite homely, his feathers are gorgeous when they shine in the sun.
The whole bird
Several people mentioned Thanksgiving, but the turkey was in no hurry to move on.
