Nature Walk: Wild Turkeys

Wild Turkeys

“Wild Turkeys are our largest gallinaceous birds (quail, grouse, pheasants and turkeys). After broods hatch in late spring or early summer, family groups can be seen wandering through woodlands, open clearings and in farm fields. They are particularly fond of corn, acorns, insects and berries. By late summer the full-size young look nearly identical to adult birds. Wild turkeys roost in trees at night and if flushed can fly surprisingly long distances. ” -Carl Kurtz
