Mariton: Turkey Trot
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
Just the other day, someone asked me if I had seen any turkeys lately. I replied that it had been awhile since I had seen any. So, the next day three males walked through the yard. I was able to take photos using the Nature Center as a blind. All three had short beards. This cluster of hair-like feathers are mostly found on males, but occasionally there are bearded hens.
