I saw this Wild Turkey (Meleagris galloparvo) hen and her babies, called "poults", on the last day of science camp in June 2005. It is amazing how many animals emerge when the kids leave! :) Wild turkeys were reintroduced into our area around 20 years ago and they have done quite well. Large flocks are a treat to see. I took this photo from the open window of my car. Turkeys may lay an average of 10 -12 eggs.
