Wild Turkeys

“Here are likewise [an] abundance of turkeys often killed in the woods, far greater than our English turkeys, and exceeding fat, sweet and fleshy, for here they have abundance of feeding all the year long, such as strawberries: in summer all places are full of them, and all manner of berries and fruits. In the winter time I have seen flocks of pigeons, and have eaten of them.”
- The Rev. Francis Higginson, 1629     (published by The Winthrop Society <>)
