In the downloadable map Plymouth, all players starts with an Intrepid Turkey Scout that can be used for scouting, but cannot attack, and if it is killed, it will turn into a crate of 100 food.
History[edit | edit source]
|“||Scientific Name: Meleagris gallopavo
Approx. Size: 30 in. tall, 20 lb.
Diet: Seeds, roots, berries, nuts, insects, small vertebrates
Wild turkeys range throughout North America, chiefly in the east. They have dark bodies with light-tipped feathers, banded wing feathers, and a bluish head. Males have a bright red wattle under their beaks and a dramatic fanning tail. They are competent fliers, but are more likely to flee danger on foot at speeds of up to 25 mph. Solitary during mating season, females build nests on the ground, at the foot of trees, or in the shelter of a bush or tall grass where she lays about a dozen eggs. Turkeys are known for the "gobbling" sounds made by males. They are the centerpiece of modern Thanksgiving meals, though the Pilgrims had a variety of game at their first Thanksgiving feast.
Benjamin Franklin disapproved of the Bald Eagle as the national bird, considering it craven and cowardly. The turkey was a much more noble and worthy bird in his opinion. Coyotes and foxes are the chief predators of adult turkeys. Turkeys and their eggs and young fall victim to a wide variety of small predators.
