Wild Turkeys Abound In The North Bay

Thanksgiving is upon us and CBS Sunday Morning produced a video of the unwilling stars of the holiday, turkeys, as they moseyed about Marin County.

Wild turkeys in Marin can be traced to birds brought into the county in the 1980s by state Fish and Wildlife to provide hunting opportunities on private lands. But with minimal hunting in the county, the birds’ population grew.

The turkeys can be found in other parts of the Bay Area as well and some worry about the impact of the non-native species on the state's ecosystem.
