Turkey in the snow

Maybe they came into town looking for the groundhog responsible for saying there might be an early spring this year. Wild turkeys are becoming a common sight in and around Clarence-Rockland and other communities in Prescott-Russell.

 

The provincial government's efforts to restore the wild turkey as part of Ontario's indigenous wildlife has more than succeeded over the past decade or so with flocks of turkeys seen roosting in trees along backcountry roads, or crossing over to get to local pasturages and open fields in search of food.

The wild turkey also seems to be more "traffic smart" than other wildlife as there are few reports or sightings of roadkill turkeys as compared to raccoons, skunks, and even deer.
