Probably not but just in case you like random bird facts (you ornithology lover!), here are some quick facts to know about turkey!

Names:

Male turkeys are called toms or gobblers while female turkeys are called hens. Males are called gobblers because of the familiar gobbling noise they make to attract females.

It can be heard from a mile away!

Body:

There are approximately 3,500 feathers on any given turkey and they have great hearing…even though they don't have ears!

They can also see colors and have fantastic vision, excellent tastes buds but their sense of smell is dreadful.

Emotion:

Did you know that turkeys can change color?!

The head of a turkey can change hues due to excitement or anxiety. The colors range from red to pink and white to blue.

Other facts about the turkey include things like the love to fly (at 55 MPH!), taking naps in trees and they can BLUSH!

Awww…aren't they embarrassingly CUTEz?!?! LOLz!
