Wild Turkey Poults

Posted on Jun 14, 2015

It’s that time again! Here we have a hen Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) with a couple of poults, and another a bit further away. There were at least seven tiny young ones with her. They stayed far in the shade of this lawn and quickly ducked back into the woodlands once they spotted me. Have you seen any yet this year?
