Winter Birds
« on: December 30, 2013, 02:26:36 PM »
Just wondering if everyone else is seeing lots of turkeys. The weather here in Pa. has switched back and forth weekly this winter. One week its in the teens and the next its in the forties. One thing about it is everything has stayed open in the forests making it easy on the animals. In the last couple of weeks I've seen more birds than ever. It seems everywhere I look I'm seeing flocks of birds. Small flocks and big, 6 birds to 20 some. Lots of hens and some really large gobblers. Seem to be hanging around fields and in the brush along streams. Not spooky at all now their not being hunted. Funny how last fall no one could seem to locate them and now they're everywhere.

Saw a large flock a few days ago.  probably about 30 birds, too far away to confirm whether they were toms or hens.

I saw two large flocks on 120 near Emporium last week when I was working up that way. Should be a great spring.
