Wild turkeys can fly
Can turkeys fly & quest;
While turkey they cooked for Thanksgiving was never in the air, wild turkeys can fly. Apparently not fast or high enough, however. Hunting by early Americans brought the wild turkey population to a low of only 30,000 birds back in the 1930s. Conservation efforts since that time, including the release of pin-raised birds back to the wild, restored the population to about 7 million today.
Wild turkeys are feeding on the ground which may have something to do with the myth that they cannot fly. They have to fly, but because they sleep in the trees at night. Some accounts say they can go up to 55 mph for short bursts.
Oh, and the Thanksgiving turkey: it's in the farm it has about as much chance of flying as you do after your pumpkin pie so roughly fattened up.
