The Canton Elementary School has received a rare specimen to add to their Pennsylvania Wildlife Project. The above mount is a female turkey shown in full flight. This is an unusual specimen due to the fact that it is a hen with a beard. Hens rarely have beards. Mr. David Beahm took this bird in McNett Township on a cloudy morning in May, 2000. Mr. Beahm generously donated the mount to the school's wildlife program.
Thank you to Mr. Beahm for the generous gift that will help children view wildlife up close.
