Wild Turkey Photos & Pictures

The female Wisconsin wild turkeys especially have a benefit that helps them survive. Their lighter color helps them blend into their surroundings when hiding from predators. Although, these are wonderful benefits for the wild turkey; they do have their unfortunate downfalls. Wild turkeys do not see well at night so they have a disadvantage to the predators lurking nearby. Wild turkeys have many predators not just for them, but also for their eggs. Humans tend to hunt them for their meat; which many love.
