My Life As A Turkey

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Wednesday, November 23, 2016/Categories: natural history, video, birds, art and design, adventure

If you thought turkeys were just butterballs in the Thanksgiving oven, think again.

PBS/Nature explored the story of a wildlife researcher and author, Joe Hutto, as he learns about intelligence in turkeys, social imprinting, and how to communicate with these wild birds. You won't think about turkeys the same way again and might even learn to speak a few words of turkey yourself.

“Had I known what was in store—the difficult nature of the study and the time I was about to invest—I would have been hard pressed to justify such an intense involvement. But, fortunately, I naively allowed myself to blunder into a two-year commitment that was at once exhausting, often overwhelming, enlightening, and one of the most inspiring and satisfying experiences of my life.”  –Joe Hutto, Illumination in the Flatwoods

Here is Joe Hutto's remarkable true story retold on PBS/Nature:  My Life As A Turkey
