Milling in flocks in open fields, Wild Turkeys are a striking sight on frosty mornings across the central and eastern states. As a symbol of Thanksgiving, the turkey represents the blessings of nature's bounty; with a courtship ritual that includes a dramatic display of the male's fanned tail feathers and a showy strut, the Wild Turkey embodies nature's magnificence, too.
When you adopt a Wild Turkey, you support Audubon’s long tradition of protecting birds and the places they need. You’ll receive:
- A lifelike plush Wild Turkey that plays a recording of its song when squeezed
- Adoption certificate and personalized letter from Audubon CEO, David Yarnold
