PBS shows a documentary about ;this time of ;year about a wild life artist and researcher who got 16 wild turkey eggs from a neighbor and incubated them, allowed them to imprint on him and he raised them, learned their language, learned a lot about them and documented his year of being a turkey mother. I loved it and I learned sooo much about wild turkeys. They are extremely intelligent and surprisingly social. who knew?

They're remarkable; no doubt. I can see why they were on the "short list" of nominees for National Bird. :-)

Sounds fascinating steadycam!

Our local paper had an article today about a turkey rescue farm. There was a cute picture of two turkeys pecking at their holiday dinner of pumpkin and stuffed squash, at a decorated table. Wish I could post it, it was cute!

Steadycam, I saw this documentary last night for the very first time and truly enjoyed it. I tried hunting wild turkey many years ago and, when it came time to pull the trigger, I just could not do it. The flock had emerged from a dense blanket of fog looking for all the world like a troop of dinosaurs. I was just spellbound. After seeing the film, I know why! Domestic turkeys are just not very smart birds, but their wild cousins truly are a most amazing and highly evolved species!
