    1. How many species of turkeys are found in North America?
    Two species - The North American Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) [with 5 subspecies] and the Ocellated Turkey (Meleagris ocellata)

    2. Which bird has the fastest wing beat?
    Depending on the species hummingbirds, wings complete 75-90 up and down movements in 1 (one) second.

    3. Which bird has the slowest wing beat?
    The slowest wing beats are attributed to several species of the New World vultures. They were observed beating wings one time per second on a level flight.

    4. What is the slowest flying bird in North America?
    The American woodcock (Scolopax minor) been timed flying as slow as 5 mph during their courtship displays.

    5. What is America's number-one game bird in terms of numbers of birds bagged every year?
    The mourning dove (Zenaida macroura) According to the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the US population of Mourning Doves is about 400 million, and about 6 percent, or 24 million, are harvested by hunters each year.

    6. Which one of the grouse species has earned the nickname of "Fool hen" ?
    The Spruce Grouse (Dendragapus canadensis) - often, when it is disturbed, spruce grouse will fly to a nearby branch or tree and observe the intruder sometimes allowing one to walk to a very close distance. This seemly tame behavior gave birth to their nickname" fool hen".
