Red, White, and Blue but not our National Bird

This was the dominant gobbler in the flock and when other younger gobblers, called jakes, approached the hen he was with he puffed up into full strut and postured strongly to keep them at a distance. Compare this gobblers coloration in it’s head and waddle to the previous days photos published here and you can see how it changes color based on how heavily it’s displaying and also it’s temperament. It might not be our national bird but I still think a turkey gobbler at full strut is damn regal.
