  9. Most people probably don’t know this, but we have wild turkeys here in Hawaii — at least on the Big Island, where I live. They were introduced from North America in the late 18th century, I believe. We have a ground feeder to attract francolins and quail, and the occasional wild turkey shows up there, too! Anyway, thanks for these nice turkey photos. Happy Thanksgiving.

  10. Great that you can find them around you – and that you could get this close.

  11. Beautiful! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! Thanks for the lovely photos.

    Why do turkeys have a head that has nearly no feathers on them? Hmmmm….

  28. Dear Tom,
    Thank you for the Turkey photo!
    I have been out hunting for one and so far have not found any wild turkeys in my area. Last year I did see a few.
    How interesting wild turkeys are in Hawaii. I do have ground feeders maybe I need to put turkey food in them.
    Have a delicious Thanksgiving and may you have plenty of leftovers. I think pumpkin pie is best for breakfast.

    @ Lisa – these were wild turkey . . they should be doing just fine! Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

    @ Sherry – These guys are great and found having them in Hawaii was interesting! Lots of leftovers and I already ate my leftover apple pie! Happy Thanksgiving!
