Recommended Viewing: My Life as a Turkey
In late 2011, PBS released My Life as Turkey, a story of Joe Hutto raising a flock of wild turkeys in the oak groves of Florida. I recently came across this video and felt it was worth sharing. The story is touching and the photography is amazing.
Here is the film description from PBS' website:
"After a local farmer left a bowl of eggs on Joe Hutto’s front porch, his life was forever changed. Hutto, possessing a broad background in the natural sciences and an interest in imprinting young animals, incubated the eggs and waited for them to hatch. As the chicks emerged from their shells, they locked eyes with an unusual but dedicated mother. One man’s remarkable experience of raising a group of wild turkey hatchlings to adulthood."
