Nesting Activity and Nest Site Characteristics of a Translocated Eastern Wild Turkey Population in East Texas

We used GPS to monitor nesting behavior of translocated birds and resident birds.  We found that only 7% of initial nests hatched, and no second nesting attempts were successful.  We documented only one brood that survived 28 days after hatching.  Our findings suggest that reproduction following translocation in this turkey population was far too low to sustain the restoration efforts.
