I've seen them glide across a canyon. They can put some distance between you and them when they want to. Have you ever seen them go to roost? It is hilarious!

We've had turkeys fly across the road here... but not very high up and were petrified we were going to hit them and get our windshield smashed on the Ford Ranger.

I saw a nature show on PBS once re: turkeys. They're one of the few species that mourn their dead. Some can even die of sorrow over a lost one (very odd stuff).

I've been to a couple rallies with Turkeys. Sometime they call themselves RV Mutants.
