Flushing numbers this year were nothing short of amazing!  We had a 100% increase in the number of birds flushed this winter in the Turbotville area.  A farm that the last two years has resulted in 80 birds flushed, produced 173 flushes.  The other areas were double as well.  We did not expect this kind increase.  We had an easy winter last year but a wet spring that caused low turkey broods.  We are having another easy winter this year and we are continuing to improve habitat in the WPRA.  We expect numbers to continue to rise unless we have bad spring hatching weather.  We expect our spring crowing counts to be high as well. (see below) We are planting switchgrass as fast as we can as the birds seem to do very well with the predator protection this grass provides.

This area received wild birds in 2007 and 2008.  You can see the population increasing again after 2011 and 2012 gaining only slightly
