The Turkeys are Where?

With the rapid spread of cities, don’t be surprised if you see a wild turkey in your backyard! Since they live in a mixture of wooded and open areas and have basic diets (nuts, berries, insects), urban areas can make pretty good habitat. You are likely to see them during the day, which is exciting during Thanksgiving! It is important not to approach the birds as they can become stressed or dangerous when threatened. Biologists recommend hazing individuals if they become problematic. Turkeys are a beautiful game species, and we are excited to see them in Atlanta! ~Carson
