Has anyone seen this? My husband found it on Netflix and I thought he was crazy but it is really good so far, we saw the first half. I'm so amazed by wild turkeys.

We finished last night and then I kept hoping that after I posted that something horrifically human didn't happen to the turkeys and I'm glad it didn't. I think overall it is a great tale of wild animals and hopefully people who have watched it learned that wild animals are indeed wild with their own aspirations.

I think that they actually won an Emmy for it as well? It was pretty amazing.

In regards to Sweetpea and Turkeyboy at the end, I want to spoiler it just not to give away the 'ending'

Spoiler: show
I was super sad about Sweetpea but I wonder if it was due to her desire to be somewhat close that also put her in danger? I don't know, I'm sure there are plenty of predators out there like the larger snakes although I suspect it was probably a fox or something similar that got her? I just couldn't help wonder if she would've found a safer nesting site if she had gone further away with the other turkeys.

And in regards to Turkeyboy, his reaction at the end seemed the natural reaction of a wild animal. As much as the biologist guy thought he imprinted on the turkeys and he did lead them and act as a quasi-mother, Turkeyboy did seem to realize the line that had to be drawn and did recognize the biologist in the end as a potential threat, which is a good reaction for wild animals to have toward humans.

Yes, it has been on my local PBS station a couple times - both time Thanksgiving week, and I wonder if it has influenced anyone to go meatless for Thanksgiving. Hopefully, but doubtful.
