|Turkey - Ben Franklin, in a letter to his daughter,
proposed the turkey as the official United States bird.
The male turkey is called a tom. The female turkey is
called a hen. Baby turkeys are called poults and are tan
and brown. Male turkeys gobble. Hens do not. They make a
clicking noise. Gobbling turkeys can be heard a mile away
on a quiet day.
