No, its not a Butterball, its a  wild 'merriam' turkey.  Its not as plump or juicy as its pale, domestic cousin, but what it lacks in girth it more than makes up for in looks.  Wild turkeys roost high up in trees and while they don't fly any more than they have to, preferring to run instead, they are actually very graceful fliers.
