Did you know that there are still wild turkeys in Colorado? The Colorado Division of Wildlife’s website is full of information on these large (and tasty!) birds. For instance, you can read the DOW’s Outdoors Journal article about imitating turkey calls. There’s also another article, “Turkey Trekking,” about finding and following turkey tracks. Kids can learn about Colorado’s wild turkeys through DOW’s Kid’s Discovery Page on turkeys. (Hint: If you print out the fact sheet, you can color the turkeys too!) If you’re interested in spotting turkeys in the wild, visit DOW’s wildlife viewing page on turkeys for information on where to go. For hunters, DOW also has a Turkey Hunting 101 webpage. And what to do with that juicy turkey once you’ve brought it home? Check out DOW’s Colorado Catch Cookbook: Wild Game and Fish Recipes, available from our library.
Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble
