Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Thanksgiving today on the other side of the Pond. So in celebration I'm posting a frame-grab of real Wild Turkeys. In the UK we associate Turkeys with cling-film swaddled domes of goose-pimpled flesh that may or may not fit in the oven on Christmas Day. In the US these magnificent galliformes roam freely. The Capercaillies of America I suppose.
Behind the Bins blogs about Turkey subspecies here. Very interesting.

Happy Thanksgiving!! I would gladly trade you a Turkey for a Capercaillie any day of the week. Heck, I would even trade you a whole flock.

Turkey hens are a fairly common sight here in the Ozark Mtns. Getting a good look at a strutting Tom is more of a rare event.
