Postby knapplc » Wed Nov 25, 2009 1:32 pm

It's Thanksgiving time in America again, and after the traditional Feats of Strength and Airing of Grievances, there's no better way to celebrate than by taking a quiz about turkeys.

I got 11 correct. Post your scores - winner gets an extra drumstick!

I got 11 as well. Wild turkeys can fly? Seriously? I always thought they were a flightless bird. :-?

We have wild turkeys in our neighborhood. I don't see how they can fly with those big bodies and relatively small wings.

Wikipedia says:

Wild Turkeys are surprisingly agile fliers and cunning, unlike their domestic counterparts. Turkeys are very cautious birds and will fly or run at the first sign of danger. Their ideal habitat is an open woodland or savanna, where they may fly beneath the canopy top and find perches. They usually fly close to the ground for no more than a quarter mile (400 m).


And it includes this picture:

When their wings are folded they look MUCH smaller than this. There's a tom and a group of hens that hang out in a wooded area a mile or so from here, and when you drive down the road, the idiot tom will come out and attack your cars when the hens are nesting. He gets right up on top of you and pecks at your tires, so you get a really good look at him. Those wings don't look nearly big enough to fly when they're folded.

It that really flying? I mean can they sustain flight? Sounds like they flap their wings really hard, and run and jump to lift off, but they pretty much just glide till they land. :-?
