Bodega Head. Although these were my first "official" Wild Turkeys, I didn't add them to my life list (and to date, still haven't) since the California populations are non-native, and it seems silly (to me) to add an introduced bird to my life list when native populations are easily seen elsewhere on the same continent. Splitting hairs? Yes, but it's my life list and no one else's.

Description from Wikipedia

The turkey is a large bird in the Meleagris genus, which is native to the Americas. One species, Meleagris gallopavo (commonly known as the Wild Turkey), is native to the forests of North America. The domestic turkey is a descendant of this species. The other living species is Meleagris ocellata or the Ocellated Turkey, native to the forests of the Yucatán Peninsula.
