Thanks to Danika and her mom for sharing this true glimpse of real America! There's nothing more American than a turkey. That's why Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be our national bird.
Our cute (and tasty!) wild turkeys lost out to the American Bald Eagle in that battle many years ago.

Would we be a different country today if the turkey had been chosen as our national bird?
Ask me again when I'm not stuffed full after Thanksgiving dinner and left-overs!
