Heads Up!

In Missouri woodlands, the age-old courtship ritual of eastern wild turkeys plays out as males, or gobblers, try to charm female turkeys. A gobbler's display, which often includes strutting, raising its tail feathers in a fan, dragging its wings in the leaves, slowly spinning, and loud gobbling, is meant to attract and stimulate hens for mating.
