CONCORD— The state Fish and Game Department is asking for the public's help to track turkey broods this summer, the agency said in a release.
The department is tracking turkeys and their young through a web-based survey at wildnh.com/turkeybroodsurvey. The survey will run from Monday through Aug. 31, the release said.
"People enjoy participating, and by doing so, they are helping us monitor the turkey population," Ted Walski, Fish and Game turkey project leader, said in a statement.
Last year, participants reported seeing more than 1,100 broods, the release said. A brood is a group of young turkeys accompanied by a hen. Most turkey eggs hatch from late May through mid-June and from late June through late July, the release said.
Reports of adult male turkeys are not requested.
