Periferia Presa Constitución 1917. San Juan del Río, Querétaro. Laura Uribe, Grupo Vasconcelos.
Stewart Creek Trail has an active turkey population currently. I'm curious what size their range is, whether these are the same turkeys I've found evidence of on the other side of the river.
There were a few turkey scat on the long Stewart Creek Trail, widely scattered enough that I felt they deserved several entries.
Didn't find tracks on the spongy forest floor, but found several scats. This was on the new Stewart Creek trail on the non-public side of LLELA.
The turkey is a large bird in the Meleagris genus, which is native to the Americas. One species, Meleagris gallopavo (commonly known as the Wild Turkey), is native to the forests of North America. The domestic turkey is a descendant of this species. The other living species is Meleagris ocellata or the Ocellated Turkey, native to the forests of the Yucatán Peninsula.
