Wild Turkey Sighting!

First wild turkey sighting of 2012!  A single tom appeared on Wednesday and spent most of the day grazing with the squirrels and ground-feeding birds.  He was a really big boy, too!   

Last year Bon Bon Pond was home to three hens who collectively produced 17 poults.  As of late November—last sighting—all had survived and seemed to flourish.  A smaller flock of toms and jakes would stop in to eat and visit periodically.  Hope they all come back this year!
