The Eastern Wild Turkey is the same species the Puritans encountered back in the seventeenth century. Turkeys have very sharp eyesight and hearing, can RUN 15 to 18 miles per hour, and can fly up to 55 miles per hour, according to the Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife. While this gobbler's head would normally be all red, it turned to white and blue during the breeding season.
