Try A Little Bird
So no one exactly wrote down, "Why yes, we ate a big turkey at the first Thanksgiving," but this is the tradition that sprang up nevertheless. Turkey is certainly a possibility, but don't forget the other game birds which could have been the centerpiece of the table. Goose, duck, and even pigeon may have been on the menu (the passenger pigeon especially). This now-extinct bird was once so numerous that flocks would darken the sky overhead, and be heard 30 minutes before they were seen. Even a novice archer could loose a single arrow into the cloud of birds and bring down several, according to eyewitness accounts. Those days are long gone, but don't let that stop you from harvesting some small birds today.
