Avery Island Wildlife - pam-and-edmund-mcilhenny

This Eastern Wild Turkey gobbler shows the typical copper iridescent chest feathers, the beard dropping from his chest area, and the chestnut brown and black tail feathers fanned out "in strut." Edmund is quite adept at using his turkey call to encourage the gobblers to strut, though we later learned, by accident, that slamming the car door worked almost as well.
