That's a pretty nice capture, autumn in the midwest! I'm no bird expert but me thinks you shot a couple of turkeys.
The tail feathers, particularly on what I take to be the male bird, do seem rather brown and pheasant like; but I'm no expert on US species either.
However, they would certainly be well camouflaged amongst that undergrowth. Plenty of good colour there.
A couple of suggestions to make shots like this work better;
Don't let the AF focus on the background, easier said than done I know, but essential
If possible, wait until the birds are in a better joint 'pose' than here; ideally facing same way or towards each other
I think I finally have gone bananas. Of course they are turkeys.
My brain went on a Holiday.
Wild turkeys (as opposed to the farm raised gobblers) are very elusive birds. It is very difficult to get any shot of them. Congratulations... I suggest using single point focus when shooting in a field of various grass like this...
