### Yeah -- legend has it that when the national symbol was debated, Franklin observed that not only are bald eagles carrion-eaters, but they're relatively world-wide. Whereas the turkey was unique to the New World, AND (ask any turkey hunter) a rather intelligent bird, which can walk a lot, but can navigate through trees like nothin'. Nope. The grandiose bald eagle won out, and the turkey became a cliché for, well, being a turkey.
