Trivia Wednesday #149: Turkey as the national bird

answer #148 - Truman (Who was the first President to pardon a turkey from Thanksgiving dinner?)

question #149 - Which Founding Father wanted the turkey to be the national bird?

*Apparently the Truman story has not been confirmed and its more probable that George HW Bush was the first one to pardon a turkey.
