Turkeys for Backyard Wildlife

Take a walk in the woods on a fall country morning and you are quite likely to see a flock of wild turkeys. If you're lucky enough to live in the country, you may be able to just look out your window and see wild turkeys crossing the yard.

The wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is the largest game bird in North America.  It is found in wooded areas across the United States.

The turkey is one of the most popular birds for the American people because it is traditionally included in holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Wild turkeys and domestic farm turkeys are both of the same family. Our farmyard turkeys are just domesticated wild turkeys! However, the domestic turkey has been interbred to be much larger.

Unlike domestic turkeys, wild turkeys can fly; although not for long distances. Usually it's just far enough to escape an enemy. At night wild turkeys fly up to roost in the lower branches of trees.

Turkeys forage in the woods or open grassy areas for food like acorns, nuts and seeds, wild berries, and insects. Keep reading to see some great pictures of wild turkeys.

What funny noises a turkey makes! Only the tom turkey actually gobbles. The hen makes clucking noises. A wild turkey's gobble can be heard up to a mile away.

Pictures of turkeys are fun for old and young alike! Keep on reading to see some great pictures of turkeys in the wild. And don't forget to share your pictures with us here!
