The snow from those heavy, wet storms we had in December condensed into a thick layer of ice, making it hard for some creatures to find food. Additional accumulations haven’t made things easier, especially for animals like turkeys who have to scratch for a living until the spring buds begin to swell.
How rough a winter was it for the turkeys? Without a count of surviving birds there’s really no way to tell, and we would like you to help us conduct a tally of turkeys by recording what you see in The Field Guide to Weston.
Sign up or sign in, upload photos, mark your sighting on the map and record some notes. Let’s see how many turkeys made it through winter and where they are!
