Happy Thanksgiving to you! Be sure to spend some time outside and enjoy nature’s offerings.

Some turkey facts! Wild turkeys are common to see walking along field edges or on mountain and forest roads, they generally walk in flocks of five to forty. Males are called toms, females are called hens, and young turkeys are called poults. The males have dark feathers and red wattles, they will display their tail feathers in a fan shape. They have many feathers, five to six thousand on their body. The males are larger than the females, their feathers are iridescent, while the females have duller colors and less iridescence. Wild turkeys roost in trees at night.
