Thanksgiving is upon us, and we imagine many of you are getting ready to carve birds. If you’re like us, you’ll likely spend Turkey Day asleep driving gabbing with the relatives about all things automotive.

Unfortunately, nobody has yet named a car after the noble gobbler, so we offer this list of cars named after birds in honor of Thanksgiving. Make sure and let us know if we missed any, and, as always, drive safely this holiday.
