Description

I have been seeing this turkey in the parking lot of the fitness center in Haywood County for several months now. The only time I could get a good picture of him was when I saw him for the first time in early January of this year. I still see him trotting around the parking lots when I go to the gym in the mornings. He seems to enjoy the calm and mostly empty parking lot.

The turkey is a large bird in the Meleagris genus, which is native to the Americas. One species, Meleagris gallopavo (commonly known as the Wild Turkey), is native to the forests of North America. The domestic turkey is a descendant of this species. The other living species is Meleagris ocellata or the Ocellated Turkey, native to the forests of the Yucatán Peninsula.
