High Adventure





Report sightings of turkey flocks in the winter months to assist in determining the effects of winter weather on turkeys. NH Fish and Game collects simple information about each flock sighting through an online survey from January 1 to March 31.

During the winter, wild turkeys gather at backyard bird feeders and typically travel across the landscape in flocks. Volunteers are needed to keep their eyes out for turkeys and report their flock sightings online with the NH Fish and Game Department. The public-generated data fill gaps in Fish and Game’s existing flock data, adding to the Department’s understanding of the abundance and distribution of turkeys during New Hampshire’s challenging winter months.
