Wild Turkey
Maleagis gallopovo

This bird was introduced into San Diego and Riverside Counties by hunters who wanted them as game birds. Environmentalists did not want them brought here because they thought the turkey would create problems for endangered and threatened species. Other attempts to establish a flock have failed in the past.
