Tracking the Wild Turkey

Is that a baby velociraptor at Oakwoods Metropark?!  A songbird might not remind us of its dinosaur ancestors, but when you see a wild turkey stalking through the undergrowth, you might just catch a glimpse of a modern prehistoric predator.  Learn about this fascinating bird as we prowl the woods of Oakwoods Metropark, searching for signs of the wild turkey. Social distancing and face coverings are required.
