Oh my...

I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. Strangely beautiful creatures.

I think this photograph is awesome! I guess I've never seen a North American Wild Turkey close up! Would this be the same type of wild turkey that I see when visiting friends up in northern Minnesota? Just curious.

Aliens would feel right at home with these birds.

Thanks all! These are strange looking birds. Strange to think about them around thanksgiving time.

Valerie - as far as I know, there is only one species of wild turkey.
