We have a slew of wild turkeys in the UK. They did not vote for Christmas and will meet their demise at the ballot box.

I spotted a single solitary wild turkey today,
which is weird, because they don't normally wander around by themselves.
The turkey had already crossed the street.
Of course I slowed down and looked around for
the inevitable other turkeys
that might be trailing behind,
and there were none.

An infant turkey, according to Wikipedia
(for the person who asked),
is a "chick" or a "poult"   

(which calls to mind 'pullet' for some reason).

I know what olddude is talking about
when turkeys cross the road.
They take their own sweet time about it
and there is always a group formation.

Some exurbian roads have Turkey Crossing signs at particular points,
so habituated are both the turkeys and the drivers.

AND there's a difference -- quite easily tasted -- between sweet and sour mash whiskeys. In sour mash leavings of the previous mash are used to start the current mash, in sweet mash the mash tub is cleaned and new yeasts and sugars are used. (REAL corn whiskey doesn't depend upon sugars other than those naturally in the corn and the malted corn, either.)

To be labeled rye wishkey in the U.S., it has to be made of at least 51% rye mash. Anything else isnot officially rye, but what people call things are a different matter. Most people don't know that there's a difference between Kentucky Bourbon whiskey and Tennessee whiskey. Certainly the flavor differnece isn't huge, but they are made differently.

Wild Turkey make one of the best straight ryes going. Beam's 8 Star is a good starter rye as it's a bit lighter than the Wild Turkey.

And just in case you're not sure - Jack Daniels and George Dickel are the only major distilleries who produce Tennessee whiskey. All others (Beam, Booker's, Knob Creek, Maker's Mark, Old Charter, and Wild Turkey) are Bourbon.

Peafowl are also rather bad tempered.
You can't pull over on that stretch of Bigelow Boulevard. There is no shoulder. There is no curb. So, you could shoot the turkeys. But you couldn't collect your turkey once you'd shot it.
As there is no curb, shoulder, or other pulling over location, nobody drives the speed limit on that stretch of Bigelow. If you're fond of Wild Turkey, or Old Granddad, or Jack Daniels, don't drive Bigelow. (Don't drive, but especially don't drive Bigelow.)

On the subject of rye whiskey, be aware that to most Americans, especially in the northeast section of the country, "rye whiskey" is just about any blended whiskey, and assuredly will NOT be made from rye. I've had friends who were ready to fight for the proposition that there is no such thing as made-from-rye whiskey.

I was going to tell everyone about the flock of wild turkeys who roost on a piece of modern sculpture on Bigelow Boulevard in Pittsburgh.
This is in the heart of the city. They've found a stretch of road where you can't pull over, so they're safe from turkey hunters.
I never really cared for that particular piece of sculpture, until it became a turkey roost.
But the subject of the thread is now whiskey, so I can't tell you about the turkeys on Bigelow Boulevard.

By the way - my favorite unusual whiskey is a little-known Irish rye whiskey. It is made from the famous fields of Athens rye in southern Ireland. The rye is a particular strain that originated near Athens Greece.

The flavor of the Athenry Whiskey is particularly mellow and strong but with a haunting note that lingers long after "your ship has sailed."

Yes - when considering the "organization" of distilled spirits, bourbon is a form of whiskey. It's main differences from Scotch Whisky (note no 'e') is that it is made primarily from corn and it is commonly aged in barrels that have been burned on the inside to form charcoal, which adds much of the flavor and color. That is different from Tennessee whiskey in that Tennessee whiskey is filtered through charcoal on it's way to the aging barrels which, like those in Scotland and Ireland are unburnt.

The main forms of whiskey are: Scotch whisky, Irish whiskey, Bourbon whiskey, Tennessee whiskey, Rye whiskey, Canadian whiskey.

And the difference between Scotch and Irish? Both malt the barley over a peat fire, but the Scots do it in an open container, which allows varying degrees of the peat smoke to change the flavor of the barly mash. The Irish do it in a closed container.

Wild Turkey is a Bourbon.

By the way - whisky is about the only thing still legitimately called "Scotch" (other than tape). The preferred term for everything else is "Scots"

Mary-

Don't feed them peacocks anywhere near the entry to your house, or you may find yourself slip-sliding away some morning!

Wild turkeys are also thriving in Maine since their re-introduction in the 1970's. When you see a flock of them moving across the field in the early morning, you can almost imagine them being a flock of dinosaurs.

Your turkey should be laying eggs this spring, infertile of course unless there is a roving Tom or Mudcatter in the neighborhood.

Cheerily,

We have wild turkeys throughout the Orlando area - like to see them while camping. As for birds around the house, there's a group of peacocks living in my neighborhood (and I live in downtown Orlando). Stepped out of my apartment last week to see one standing on the seat of my scooter.

Turkeys are quite adept at reproduction. Wild turkeys were extinct in Iowa throughout most of the 20th century. Fifteen years ago or so they were reintroduced into some wildlife preserve areas in northeast Iowa. Now I see a whole flock (12) of wild turkeys stroling through my yard in the middle of town (pop. 130,000). We often see wild turkeys in town while driving around. They seem to be outnumbered only by deer and rabbits.
