I found this little guy trying to cross a busy road, so I placed him in the woods nearby. I hope he reunites with mama!
A female wild turkey was found near the Stonehill College entrance.
Inadvertently flushed a turkey hen off her nest.

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.
