Help Trent U PhD student investigate the utility of eBird and iNaturalist

Last winter, Jenn Baici ran a pilot project in Peterborough County to explore how she might be able to use data gathered by citizen scientists to predict wild turkey population size. This year she and her colleagues have expanded the project and are requesting wild turkey observations province-wide.

If you spot a wild turkey flock anywhere in Ontario from December 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019, please submit your sighting to eBird or iNaturalist. Your observation will be used to help estimate how many wild turkeys call Ontario home. You can add observations on your computer by following either of the links below, or through the eBird or iNaturalist mobile apps!
