Anybody Seen Any Wild Turkeys Lately?

Dear Gary:

Some time ago you were asking about wild turkey sightings and we had one female that occasionally appeared in North Berkeley, north of the Cal campus. Last saw her about 2 years ago. I was driving to work about 8:45 a.m. this morning (Oct. 26) and there was a huge flock (15-20) of wild turkeys at a street corner about 6 blocks north of campus. Traffic stopped while they debated at length, then finally the whole flock crossed the street, in the crosswalk, and leisurely headed west. They were all about the same size. Didn’t notice any males, but OBVIOUSLY there must be some around. (Mary Durantini, Berkeley)
