The wild turkeys of Berkeley: Out and about again

Is it our imagination, or are the wild turkeys of Berkeley becoming bigger and more prevalent? It was only a couple of weeks ago that we reported on two clusters of the fabulous fowl roaming the streets of Berkeley and Albany. And yesterday a photograph of a group of them happily exploring someone’s roof crossed our radar.

The photos here were sent in by Ty Alper, who was driving down San Pablo Avenue this morning around 8:45 am, and spotted this flock near the intersection with Marin.

“They were in the street until they got scared and scattered into an alley,” he writes.

Turkey takeover anyone?
