Turkey Tail - not like I painted in kindergarten

These guys are pretty impressive - lots of gobble noises while scurrying after the hens.

I remember in kindergarten we made clay models of turkeys at Thanksgiving...I think I painted rainbow colors on the tail of the turkey...that wasn't anatomically correct.  

I see a connection between Meleagris gallopavo and urban graffiti.   Maybe also a connection with noisy Harley's...

here is an image of the feather pattern on the back of the turkey.   Very much like shingle patterns on roof tops.

Very special colors and patterns...
