  • Count Wild Turkeys This Winter.
    Consider recording the number of wild turkeys you see this winter to help DEC monitor trends in New York’s wild turkey populations. Snow and cold temperatures negatively affect wild turkeys, particularly young birds (“jakes” – young males and “jennies” – young females). Your observations will help DEC calculate wild turkey numbers prior to the spring breeding season. The survey runs from January 1 through March 31 and participating is easy. Visit the
    Winter Wild Turkey Flock Survey (http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/48756.html) webpage where you will find an electronic form with further instructions. Also, take a look at the 2010 winter flock survey results (http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/66526.html) to learn what your observations told us about turkey populations last year.
