Subject: RE: BS: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Daylia.... crows (ravens?) will kick up an awful racket at the first sign of a predetor and will not stop until it leaves their nesting/roosting area. Turkeys, on the other hand, from what I have learned, will remain silent when given a single warning call from the lead hen. Either way, these birds ain't stupid.

Anyone able to confirm the above regarding turkeys? I have seen this behaviour in Ruffed Grouse but we have no wild turkeys in these here parts, yet.
