"My Life As a Turkey" - Great Nature Documentary

Our relationship to animals is often anthropomorphic.  We aways see the animals through our own species-centric view.  This incredible story, "My Life as a Turkey," takes us humans into a highly unsuspecting direction.   Joe Hutto, a naturalist and wildlife writer and artist who lives in the flatwoods of Florida, observes nature.  This is the story about becoming nature.  His observation of imprinting by animals becomes his story of becoming "a turkey" as he helps hatch and raise 16 wild turkeys for two years of his life. This episode premiered on the PBS Nature program November 16, 2011.
