Since this is the last Fun Friday before Thanksgiving, I pulled out this article from the Smithsonian giving us all sorts of fun facts about turkeys. The turkey as we know it is a fairly wobbly, odd-looking bird but apparently at least the wild ones are capable of flying 55 miles per hour. It sort of makes you wonder how anyone ever caught one.
When you think about Thanksgiving, though, you always think about the turkey. Even people I know who are vegetarians still think about turkey, even though they don’t eat it. So… enjoy at least learning about the animal who will be helping you give thanks. Next year maybe I’ll give you some facts about cranberry sauce.
