Tracks in the Snow

We woke up in the Gatineau Hills to these tracks in the snow. The footprints are all single file and they petered off into the woods. The tracks are connected. They were too large to be rabbit and deer have four feet. These were obviously made by a bi-pedal or two footed animal.

Then it struck me. These were wild turkey tracks. Wild turkeys have flourished in this neck of the woods in the past few years. A couple of weeks ago, there were eight wild turkeys pecking at the dead grass before snow covered the ground.

With the ice storm that we had on Saturday, and the snow yesterday, it must be tough for the wild animals, turkeys included to find food.
