Description

new bird for my yard. I have a couple of acres of suburban live oak savannah adjacent to a juniper woodland. I'd never seen Wild Turkey at this spot but this morning there was a flock of six investigating the area after some much needed rain the previous day or two.

I was walking to class at around 11 am when I spotted two turkeys in my path to class. They did not even notice me! The clawing the brush and poking the ground with their beaks.

Possible territory negotiation...one would assume a posture and the other would "mirror" the behavior across the wire fence.

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.
