The heavy snows here have forced many Wild Turkeys that aren’t fed by humans to leave the fields and forage for nuts and seeds in deep woods. Wild Turkeys apparently are not bothered much by cold weather, but research has found that they don’t do well scratching through more than a foot of frozen snow.


So, they often search for food in stands of large conifers, where the evergreen branches act as snow umbrellas under which there is less drifted snow. (Brooklin, Maine)
