Posted February 18, 2019 06:16:13The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA) has released its 2016 report on the brooding raptor.
According to the report, brooding turkeys have declined by 40 percent in North America since 2000.
But, the raptors have not yet reached their full potential in the wild, as they lack an ecosystem to feed off of.
Brooding turks need to find a new habitat, and the species has been in the process of trying for decades.
“Brooding turrows are native to the U.S. Midwest, but are now being extirpated from their range, as many of their prey species are moving southward,” said NCDA Director of Natural Resources Dr. Amy Dennison.
“They are also being reduced in numbers due to habitat loss, disease, and predation by other raptors, such as falcons, owls, and birds of prey.”
Brooding raptors rely on their hunting prowess to survive.
The birds rely on hunting to sustain themselves and to feed on their own prey, which includes small birds.
It is estimated that between 50 and 75 percent of the turkeys and other raptor species in the North Carolina wild are found in small areas.
However, the wild turkeys are considered an endangered species.
“With a limited amount of available habitat, the turkey’s population is in decline and its recovery will be very difficult,” Dennisons said.
“The turkey’s natural habitat in North American is severely restricted.
Our goal is to protect this species by protecting its habitats, which include breeding grounds and nesting grounds.
The success of the brooded raptors depends on their ability to adapt to their new habitats and to survive in these harsh conditions.”
Dennison says the birds need to become more resilient.
“We need to work together to help the turks and other species recover their natural habitats,” she said.
Brooding turkey is a species that is native to North America and has been a keystone species in their recovery efforts.
The species is also critically endangered.
“Many of the wild species in our region are threatened and have been reduced in size or even gone extinct,” Dennaison said.
“Our goal is for the species to recover to its full potential and become a key component of our bird population, which we have to have to ensure the survival of the North American raptors.”
