Description

A flock of 8-10 adult and juvenile turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) scattered into the woods from a side lawn as we approached a cousins house. It was 25 degrees Fahrenheit with a light snow falling and a steady breeze. If it wasn't for the truck approaching the flock would have stayed put and finished eating the longer sprigs of grass that are still visible. The house is situated on a wood line (the second photo attached) and the turkeys typically take cover in the woods and trees when approached by a predator than return to the lawn for food.

Description from Wikipedia

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.
