    I started to take your quiz until I saw that you misspelled "inaccurate," at which point I stopped. If you can't spell that correctly (despite spelling "accurate" correctly!), it makes me doubt the accuracy of your information.

    This morning I looked out over the yard as I sipped my morning coffee just as I always do. But today motor nature blessed me with 7 turkeys walking across the front yard! Oh yeah, did I mention, we live in a populated area within the city limits? And the fact that we have never seen turkeys in our area before?

    A turkey feather came to me while walking in the mountains and Julian California many years ago. My dog came running up to me with the turkey feather in his mouth and sat down in front of me. At that time I did not realize why feathers we're always being given to me. I now use the turkey feather to clear auras in my work. Thank you for this beautiful article.

    Two jakes- A rare grey phase and a standard pattern Eastern turkey grace us with their presence.They are inseparable, and visit to our home each day and greet us when we come outside.They will also walk after us, at the respectful distance, and purr and putt. They also sit outside our home during a portion of the day. Great fun to watch them interact with other turkeys and the deer.

    I was driving to work and a wild turkey jumped off the edge of the rode and across my windshield. I ducked.

    This morning just after seeing a red cardinal perched for quite a while on the branch in my backyard, "ten turkeys" rather slowly paraded through the yard. Then they gathered and seemed to have found food or something in the grass. Eventually they turned and found a path through the woods and were gone. This is also the first day we can say the snow of a New England winter has finally passed. I was able to catch them on camera.
