I believe it's a Rafter of Turkeys, and they are polygynous with males
mating with multiple females.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Juncos and turkeys and cardinals
I have had a "gang" (party, convocation?) of turkeys now for about 8 days
at my feeders; the houses around us don't seem to bother them. They are the
same ones to gather around the feeders - 1 tom and 7 hens. They go after
the millet on the ground. I did not realize how far they can fly. Are they
Juncos have been around now for about 5 days, lots of them, maybe 30 or so.
And, this year I have more cardinals - 5 pair in all. They are spectacular
birds to watch.
