The Wild Turkey was a very important food animal to Native Americans, but it was eliminated from much of its range by the early 1900s. Introduction programs have successfully established it in most of its original range, and even into areas where it never occurred before.
A flock of 7 hens just happened to be crossing a country road when I spotted them. I quickly scanned the group for babies but saw none. Being on the wrong side of them for photographic purposes, I found their brightly lit red necks interesting and took some shots, highlighting plenty of features I wouldn't call attractive.
