Each morning, Chris and I sit and have coffee, overlooking the empty winter fields. Often times, a flock of up to 25 turkeys emerges through the brambles and weeds that separate field from woods. Many know that Ben Franklin wanted to make these large foul the official bird of the United States. While not as majestic as the Bald Eagle, these wild turkeys certainly have a collective personality and are more commonly seen. Despite their size and awkward body shape, they can take flight to amazing heights, quickly flying into woods, somehow managing to navigate or crash through the thick lattice of branches.
