Are Geese Smarter Than Turkeys?

C03e8596f2ad499e9cd2d5ed51d53ea6_2 In a recent post on nwpa.com, veteran outdoor writer Mike Bleech suggests that when compared to Canada geese, wild turkeys are dumb.

"Each fall the new population of Canada geese gets whittled down pretty good on opening day of the goose hunting season," Bleech writes. "By the second day of the season, the geese that remain are entirely different creatures, at least in the way they behave. No other birds learn so much so fast as Canada geese. They can make hunters weep or curse."

Interesting perspective. I personally don't agree, but I wonder what the rest of the Strut Zoners think.—Gerry Bethge
