Wild Turkey (3)

This Wild Turkey tom showed up a few days ago after being absent since last fall. Five hens returned with him. A crippled hen has been present most of the winter and more recently another hen joined her. The turkeys feed on the wild bird seed I throw out for song birds. Each turkey will consume as much feed as several song birds. Wow! I’ll be making more frequent trips to the feed store.

    Yet by the early h century, wild turkeys no longer roamed over much of their traditional range. They had been wiped out by hunting and the disappearance of their favored woodland habitat.
