This big bird is found in flocks of up to 60 in open woods with fields or clearings, foraging on the ground or roosting in trees. Turkeys are polygynous, and males take no part in incubation or rearing chicks.
Thanks to hunting regulations and reintroduction to areas where it had been hunted out, the Wild Turkey is beginning to re-occupy its historic range across the USA.
