Eastern Wild Turkey
Found in flocks ranging from just a few to two dozen or more, wild turkeys will surprise you with their speed: they can run 18 mph and fly up to 50 mph! They prefer open forests and forest edges, where they eat a wide variety of leaves, grasses, seeds and berries as well as insects, worms, snails and small reptiles. At night, they sleep in the trees. A mature turkey can have up to 6,000 feathers!
