Raven like bird with red on the very top of its head?

by Lisa Macaulay
(Port Sydney, Ontario, Canada )

I saw what I thought were 3 ravens on the road eating something. They had their heads down. When I approached them in my car I had to slow down before they flew out of the way. When two of the birds went to fly away into the trees I noticed they had red on the top of their head. But it was just on the very top of its head not down to its eyes and they kind of stuck up. Very distinctive red. I thought maybe I was mistaken until I saw the three of them a second time a few weeks later. I still haven't been able to get a picture yet and I have looked through my bird book as well as on line. I live in Muskoka Ontario Canada. The road is very well treed in that area.i am hoping to see them again only this time get a picture. Both time a saw them I was going around a corner and came upon them to quickly to stop and get a picture before they flew away.

Although I wouldn't describe them as raven like, I drove through the Muskoka area last fall, and came across Wild Turkeys, which have red on their heads. (The males.). Google muskoka wild turkeys and see if that's a match.
