Natural World: My Life As A Turkey
My Life as a Turkey is the heart-warming tale of Joe Hutto, a man who raised sixteen wild turkeys from eggs to fully fledged birds. This film follows the growing birds, as Joe did, through the oak groves and cypress swamps of Florida. Seen through the young bird's eyes and told through Joe's heartfelt diary entries, this film meets the individual characters, gains a remarkable insight into the complexities of turkey behaviour and reveals these birds are far from stupid.
