Roosting Ecology of Gould’s Wild Turkeys in Southeastern Arizona

We used GPS data from Gould’s monitored in Arizona to look at roost selection.  We found that Gould’s had high roost fidelity, meaning they used the same roosts quite a bit.  These roosts were found at moderate elevations, basically mid-slope, and were mostly on north-facing slopes.  These findings really point to the importance of conserving and wisely managing forests on the north side of the mountains where Gould’s live.
