Wild Turkey
The Wild Turkey - Turkeys are classified as order Galliformes, Family Meleagridae. They are native to north and central America and were introduced into Europe in the 16th century by the Spanish explorers. The male measures four feet in length including the tail and the female three feet. It has a hooked bill, a naked bluish head and neck. A red fold of flesh called a wattle hangs from the chin. The iridescent plumage is bronze with green highlights and a squarish tail with chestnut or white tips. The wings are short and rounded. They live in small flocks feeding on insects and plant matter.
During the mating season each male gathers a harem. He then performs for them by strutting and displaying his tail feathers. The female then builds a well hidden nest on the ground and 8-18 buff coloured eggs are laid. The wild turkey is still hunted.
