I took a walk in the woods along the Stanislaus River the other day and ran into a small flock of wild turkeys. I have been spotting turkeys there as well as seeing them in the foothills on both sides of the central valley for about 20 years and wondered how widespread they were. In checking both online and with experts at the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, I have determined that turkeys are actually quite plentiful in the Golden State.
