Large squawking bird in Minnesota

by Roberts

This tan-colored bird has been hanging around our house all week. It doesn't appear to be able to fly, but walks around our yard and runs away when we approach her.

It is about the size of a turkey but squawks and chirps instead of gobbling. Thanks for any help!

I contacted MOU and they report the belief that this may be an inbreed Guinea Fowl.
