Notes 52 wild turkeys roosting in large Douglas firs. Most flew down to ground at 9:30 am. One tom flew down around 8:30 and was displaying. Lots of vocalizing - clucks, yelps and rapid gurgling. Display also included a thump sound when wings were lowered followed by feather shivers. After a winter of roosting in the same trees the the branches become quite bare.
