I'm no Turkey expert, but after help from my twitter friend D.W. Maiden and checking out a few diagrams, this looks to be a male turkey. The long beard and the spurs on the lower foreleg are just two characters that set a male apart from the female. It's just too bad I didn't get a better head angle. I was in a rush to get home to Megan and Weston, and I just didn't have the time I needed to get a better images once they walked back into the scrubby woods. Blendon Woods Metropark has quite a large group of Turkeys. The last three times I have been there, I've seen at least two, but yesterday afternoon was by far the best photographic opportunity I've had.
