Can Wild Turkeys Fly?

Wild turkeys can and do fly. Although these birds may sometimes weigh over 25 pounds, their strong muscles and wings allow them powerful flight over short distances. However, adults rarely fly with continuous wingbeats for more than about 1/8 mile. When gliding with periodic wingbeats– such as flying downslope– turkeys can fly about 1 mile without difficulty. Their flight speed has been estimated as up to 55 to 60 mph. By nature, however, turkeys are “cursorial” (running) birds and they prefer to move about and escape on foot except when startled or severely chased. The young poults learn to fly at about 8 to 10 days. At that time, they begin to roost with the hen in trees. Before attaining “flight status”, the hen and poults stay together on the ground at night. This may make them more susceptible to predators. Turkeys do not migrate or fly south for the winter.

yes absolutely! in facts turkey can fly for miles! they are beter fliers then most other birds. they can reach speeds of upto 72 miles an hour. thats as fast as a cheetah.dont be fooled by their silly aperarence. turkeys are among some of the most athletic birds! they can run up to 22 miles an hour. i just love them! they are a jack of all trades! i mean what bird do you know that can out pace a rotwiler then turn around and outfly an eagle? they are very impressive.i have seen turkeys hundreds of feet above the ground gliding! they ressemble black vultures! the only give away are that they are so fast and their short wings!they can fly for a little over a mile! but at that speed its for a few seconds! but the wild turkeys weigh less than domestic ones. thats also is another turkey misunderstanding! on average they weigh 7 to 13 pounds! ther about the the size of a cat!
