If the birds are in the surrounding area , then there in yours too.
Next time you go out there walk around the oak trees and look for feathers laying around.
Look for droping as well , they'll look like a little cigar butt like in the photo below.
Also look around the ground for tracks and small circles of cleared ground , thats the kind of sign they leave when there feeding.

All right .... I may not know alot about " Jack " but I do know my s**t , speaking of which in my first reply the " turd " in the picture was made by a hen.
The " turd " made by a tom would be longer with a curled tip at one end , looking like the letter " J " .
In my second reply I mentioned something about deer droppings and the diffrence between a buck and doe , so I'm gonna post those pictures as soon as find what disk they'er on.
Stay tuned for more s**t coming soon.
