Wild turkeys are native to North America. The kind we have around here are a subspecies called Eastern wild turkey. Today they live all around the eastern US, from Florida to Canada and west to the Dakotas.
When I saw them cruising around for food, they looked like a line of dinosaurs! I have seen as many as 12 in one flock or rafter.
They look for snails, bugs, seeds, roots, berries and nuts to eat. They are known as smart and watchful birds. When they were eating, one or two of the more mature birds would always keep watch. If I got close enough to make them nervous, they'd flap their wings and move quickly in the opposite direction.
And they can move quickly, or even fly straight up to get into a tree!
