These are BIG wild birds! The flock is 5 to 10 birds. Those are good looking turkeys considering turkeys are just one step away from being as ugly as a buzzard or vulture. Wild turkeys, so cool. I always thought they were much smaller and the domesticated breeds were those giant plump ones. Here is an image of a wild turkey flying - who ever gets an aeriel view of one of these? Rare, I'd say. And why those extravagant colors on the head? Incredible. Isn't it wonderful the imagination of God? If you were to take a pallet of the average painter you'd have all of these hues present - literally hundreds of variations of pigment.
