Description

Headed back up north after a really nice meeting in the Lower Rio Grande Valley with the other urban biologists.

Wanted to explore some of the nature trails of Sablatura Park in Banquete. Enjoyed it here, but I did get a flat tire -- someone left out some nails, I suppose. :-/ Worth it -- saw some nice organisms. :)

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.
