Description

Incidental Sighting: I was driving home at first they were crossing in front of my Jeep. I pulled over to the side of the road to observe them for about 20 minutes before they flew off. You could see their wet tracks across the cold and dry road. It was cold and just before the snow started to fall.

Description

Organismo de tamaño mediano y complexión gorda. Tenía una especie de protuberancia carnosa que cuelga por debajo de su pico y tiene una pigmentación roja.
Cuenta con un pico fuerte y de una longitud mediana, de color entre negro y amarillo. Su plumaje era mayoritariamente gris, con toques de color café y beige, a excepción de su cabeza, que parecía ser más bien de color azul y tenía una textura rugosa.
Sus patas eran de complexión larga y delgada, lo que les permitía moverse ágilmente.
Los encontré en una tarde templada con una temperatura de 17°. Caminaban en parvada en un lugar alto.

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.
