Mariton: Turkey in the Snow
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
I am seeing a lot of Turkeys on this side of the hill lately. I think they are taking advantage of the southern exposure and our neighbors’ bird feeders. They have definitely been visiting the bird blind and our feeders. The other day I was checking trails and found the tracks pictured below. There had been an early skiff of snow, and sun was now bright. The tracks were so fresh, that I knew I would cross paths with the turkeys. I had the camera ready, but the snow was too crunchy. All that I saw of the flock was individuals dashing through the brush.
