Wild Turkey Facts
Wild Turkeys are easily recognizable to most of us who undoubtedly colored their outlines around Thanksgiving in grade school. These large gamebirds are common in the east coast and have scattered populations in every state except Alaska. They travel in flocks and consume everything from seeds and berries to insects. Their common predators include coyotes, mountain lions, eagles and bobcats. They have many vocalizations including the famous "gobble" but also "clucks," "putts," "purrs," "yelps," "cutts," "whines," "cackles," and "kee-kees." There are six different subspecies of Wild Turkeys. They are also one of two birds that have been domesticated in North America.
