I do not see many turtles out any more at this time of the year but with sunny skies and temps up in the 60s I would not to surprised to see turtles out basking in the sun. Most turtles hibernate during the winter. They swim down to the bottom of a pond and burrow in the mud, where they can spend several months. The cold temps help them to go into a type of suspended state that slows down their metabolism. At this time they do not need to eat and are able to absorb oxygen from the water through the skin on their necks and the base of their tale. As long as the pond does not completely freeze and they are not found by predators they can survive this way through out the winter.
