New Turkey Record for Sanctuary




A couple of weeks ago I looked outside the window of my house on the Wildlife Management Area of the Sanctuary to see a gigantic flock of Turkeys. A few years ago I had a regular winter flock of around 30 individuals. They have been hit or miss since then..sometimes a few, sometimes many, and never stay around for more than a few days. They were feeding under the evergreen trees in the yard that had little or no snow underneath. They cleaned out my feeders in about 60 seconds! I couldn't get them all in the camera view at one time.
