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.
