Wild Turkey

TRACKS

 

In snow. The boot in the lower left portion of the left photo gives a bit of a sense of scale.

Here's a close-up pic of a Wild Turkey track
 

Here, a turkey walked from the right to the left, turned, and walked back.
Can you figure out which track belongs to which foot (ie, right or left)??

 
A single track from the same Turkey as the above photo.
 
More tracks.

The direction of travel is the reverse of the "arrow" formed by the claws.

So, in this photo, the direction of travel of the right set of tracks is away from the camera.
