“New Brunswick’s Newest Avian Immigrant: The Wild Turkey”

Presenter: Jim Wilson

Never in our history has a new bird discovered our province on foot – until now. Slowly and quietly during the past two decades, hundreds of Wild Turkeys eluded border officials and slipped into New Brunswick from Maine, where a vibrant population of the birds is firmly established in all 16 counties. But how does a bird of this size, a species that was never here historically, cope with finding food in deep winter snow and cold, compete with native bird species and evade potential new predators? Well, Wild Turkeys are doing just that, and quite successfully. Our Wild Turkeys now number in the thousands. This talk will explain how they do it.
