Exploring the Vibrant Wildlife of Spring in South Carolina

Turkeys & Other Wildlife on Trail Cam

The warm weather has finally arrived here in South Carolina. All the wildlife are active now. Last night, we saw a black bear on our BLINK camera looking for food.

Plus, there are many wild turkeys looking for food and simply being social. I’m very excited that our trail cameras captured this! I usually see them in my late morning walks crossing from one side of the woods to the other. I compiled 40 trail cam videos of turkeys, ravens and deer for your enjoyment.

Kind Regards,

Some fun facts about wild turkeys

Turkeys are quite active during spring in South Carolina. They are looking for acorns and seeds that dropped last fall under leaves and debris. Turkeys can run up to 25 miles per hour and fly as fast as 55 miles per hour. Also, turkeys will roost in trees overnight to protect themselves from predators. Read more here.

Ravishing Ravens on Trail Cam

I am raving about ravens. The weather is great now for raven watching. According to wildlife experts, many have admired the ravens’s intelligence and confidence as they strut around. Ravens are not usually as social like crows, but sometimes they hang around in pairs.

Our trail cam captured 174 raven videos! I narrowed down the trail cam videos and picked out the most enjoyable footage.

Wishing everyone a lovely spring.

All the best!
