The wild turkey is probably a common sight in many neighborhoods across N. America. They were in my front yard but by the time I got my camera they were getting a drink from the gutter next door. They were originally native to eastern N. America but have been introduced to many areas including here in northern California. They thrive in oak woodlands and lower coniferous forests where they eat acorns, grains, insects. They are often a pest in the urban-wildland interface where they come into yards and forage in gardens, eat dog food or nip off rose buds, etc. and perch on roof ridges or in larger trees. Many people don't like them being in town but I enjoy them. There are spring and fall hunting seasons for these (the toms) but not inside the city limits where they are relatively safe.
