Long Live The Wild Turkey! … Wild Turkeys were non-existent in the years of my childhood. It is still a thrill for me to see one in the wild.
A native of the mountains of North Carolina, USA, this bird almost totally vanished from the land. With a restoration project that began in 1953 by The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission , they have been re-established.. The wild turkey population has been restored.
