wild turkey free loader

Min3 South S.F. Bay CAFebruary 9, 2012

my wildlife garden and property is becoming a little too successful! this morning a turkey hen was on my high narrow front porch, only about 3 feet from the window, eating seeds out of the pan that i feed the other birds in. she didn't seen to mind me or my big dog watching her from so near by.

since there are flocks of 50+ turkeys here, (sadly) i will have to discourage her behavior somehow, but since she flies very well i can't think how to do it other than wrapping the porch in large netting or not feeding the other birds at all.

has anyone had the same problem and managed to discourage the turkey without hurting it? if so, tell me how!

thanks, min

Hey min, perhaps your dog would like to watch the turkey from OUTSIDE the window!!!
