Wild turkeys in the pasture

Wildlife are still abundant in this area of Maine although more and more open land is being developed for housing and other structures. It is much more difficult to make a living off the land although "niche" farming and specialty agricultural products can still be profitable. We still get many wild visitors to the farm and have spotted the following animals on the farm at one time or another: flying squirrels, bats, deer, snapping turtles, woodchucks, porcupines, milk snakes, moles, voles, hawks, eagles and coyotes. We are pretty sure a moose once walked though our fence line as the tracks were way too large to be a deer. We can hear loons from nearby ponds and we have seen and heard many species of owls once the evening settles in. Every year we wait for the peepers (tree frogs) to come out heralding the beginning of spring. We can always find an assortment of frogs, toads, newts and salamanders as well when we set out to look for them. There is always an abundance of migratory birds during the good weather with crows, ravens, bluejays and chickadees always present in the winter.

Wild turkeys were reintroduced into central Maine in the 80s and have done very well. Large groups of wild turkeys can now be spotted routinely in Kennebec county.
