Wild Turkey in tree

Photo by secpnc
Although turkeys prefer to feed on the ground and travel by foot (faster than 19 miles per hour) they can fly short distances and like to roost in trees at night. This charismatic bird has acute senses and a highly developed social system. Early in life both male and female turkeys gobble. The females eventually outgrow this practice, leaving males to gobble competitively for the honor of mating.
