wild turkeys in Wayne, NJ

wild turkies

These wild turkeys hang out around the campus of William Patterson University (northern New Jersey).  I only had an opportunity to photograph them from out the car window; they’re pretty skittish.  You’ll note that these are female turkeys – it’s the males that have all that large rear plumage  – I presume that exists to attract the females, but I’m just guessing.  You can catch a glimpse of some male turkeys in my video Animal Retrospective.
