facing slope at Mt Pisgah about a week ago. Many trails of turkey
tracks were traveling to and from the wetland at the bottom of the
hill. There was a roosting area (a large collection of scats under a
few oak trees) on the slope, close to the top. The top of this warm,
exposed hill already had bare patches (everyplace else was covered with
snow), and the oaks made for good foraging. One photo shows what the
top of the hill looked like -- it was covered with turkey tracks and
scratched areas where they had foraged under the oak leaves for acorns.
I've never seen so much turkey sign in one place.
