Decline in Deer, turkeys & birds

Asked August 5, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

We moved to NEPA last year retiring here full time. Last year we saw many deer, turkeys and birds. The decline in seeing these animals has been quite noticeable this year and wondered if you could give us some input on your thoughts. Thank you Ron & Betty Reichelt

There are many factors involved in wildlife movements. I have noticed fluctuations in bird populations as well. I believe it has much to do with food and water reserves and adequate cover. While we may not notice slight changes, they do and migrate accordingly. See our site for more on this:
