WHAT TO DO ABOUT WILD TURKEYS 

 

Residents have reported wild turkeys being a nuisance on the property. The first step towards 

resolving conflicts with turkeys is to eliminate sources of food such as hand outs from

people, unsecured garbage and spilled bird seeds. Please consider removing bird

feeders (especially in the spring & summer) until the turkeys move on.  Remember

to also talk to your neighbors to ensure that they are not feeding turkeys either. 

Its easy to scare turkeys away by making loud noises, popping open an umbrella,

throwing tennis balls, or dousing the turkey with water from a hose or squirt gun.

During mating season (February - May) male turkeys may venture into 

neighborhoods looking for females to mate with.  They may respond aggressively

to reflective surfaces (such as windows, auto mirrors or polishes car doors),

thinking that their reflection is an intruding male turkey.  In this case, chase the

turkey away and then temporarily cover the reflective surface if possible.
