Wild Turkey (“record” shots)

Several Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) were spotted along the edge of the parking lot at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Prince William County, Virginia USA.

Appearances to the contrary, the photos in this set were taken at quite a distance. Wary of my approach on foot, the turkeys did the turkey trot, moving from right-to-left until they were out of sight quickly.

Although I have seen signs of Wild Turkey at OBNWR, this is the first time I’ve seen actual birds. Not my best work, but hey, these “record” shots provide documentation of the sighting. With any luck, it won’t be the last time I see Wild Turkey at the refuge.
