Wild Turkeys

Wild turkeys have been passing through my yard lately. Males are primed for breeding season. This one kept spreading his tail, puffing up his feathers, and strutting. And what female turkey could resist that red, white, and blue skin head?  

Striking the classic turkey pose.

Then there's this guy who seems to be still growing into his head gear. Click to enlarge.

Some turkey facial ornaments have names. That's a snood dangling over the the beak, red wattles under the chin, and various other head bumps are called caruncles. Get a load of the snood on this guy. And the wattles. And the caruncles.

Looking good, turkeys!
