Wild Turkeys

A native California wild turkey found its way to the Island City just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. It seems colder weather might attract the birds closer to the relative warmth of the bay waters as nearly every winter these turkeys pay a visit. This turkey, expectantly waiting for Jeeves to open the car door, poked around Eagle Avenue last weekend. Sun publisher Eric J. Kos reports seeing a bird in his neighborhood Saturday. “There was a turkey just hanging out in someone’s front yard on Paru Street near Franklin Park,” said Kos. “I see them up in the hills while hiking, too.”
