Actually, turkeys can fly a bit. I used to have a yard with lots of trees, and the turkeys would fly into the lower branches and hang out. It was always disconcerting; they really don't look like they belong in trees at all.

I've seen them in the high branches. Don't recall seeing them actually in flight, however..hmmm.

They can fly

I've had them roosting in my trees, maybe thirty feet up.

They are not graceful when they land.

I watched a coyote come around the corner of the house across the street and surprise a turkey early one morning. The turkey flew straight up into a big oak tree and landed about 60 feet off the ground.

I guess that gives a new meaning of the term "Turkey Train"...
