Don-2 days ago, Ernie Harris and I watched a turkey hen lying on the ground-with a tom standing on her back. Hmmm-wonder what that was about. We were in a car within 20 feet-and no camera. So breeding season is underway now. I had also thought that they would be finished breeding by now.

Every year I see a few Turkeys in the BHYF area, sometimes  alone, usually 
in small flocks. But this year I have no idea what is going on.  For weeks, 
starting in April, I saw a single Turkey almost every day. And  almost never 
more than one at a time and usually in a different location  every day. 
But suddenly I am seeing small flocks of 5 or 6 with both Toms  and hens. 
And yet, I still have not seen a single poult.
I don't know the exact timing but I think this is around  the end of the 
nesting season. Shouldn't I be seeing hens or groups of hens with  a whole 
bunch of poults?
