Turkey takes the center stage this week, unfortunately for the turkey it’ll be a one time performance, except for in a sandwich on Friday. Brookfield Zoo’s Andre Copeland introduced First Light host Brian O’Keefe to Georgette, she’s one of North America’s largest bird species. While turkey is part of her name, it’s a safe bet neither Georgette nor any of her relatives will be on anyone’s Thanksgiving menu
