Turkey Track

I found this track in soft sand ... and wondered what bird around here makes a track 5 inches wide?  The toes looked too fat to be a great blue heron and my first impression was 5 inches across was too big for a wild turkey.  Then I found the feather.  I was sure it was the breast feather from a tom (male).  Finally, at home, I looked up the size of turkey tracks.  It definitely could be a tom turkey's.
