San Jose Turkey Relocated

Many thanks to the Department of Fish and Wildlife who helped relocate the wild turkey to wild habitat, far from people. Check out the release, where it meets up with a large rafter of other wild turkeys.

  2. Great! Thank you. I was wondering what happened with the juvenile male shown in your "Turkeys run afoul in SJ". I am assuming this is the female of that pair? What is the status of the male? Has he also been relocated and released?

  4. The female (nicknamed Juliet) is still at the Diocese of San Jose...quietly guarding the front door and looking for her Romeo! She does not seem to fancy cars as he did, but she still pops out from out of nowhere and continues to be at risk of being struck by one of them as she crosses the streets in the Hyde Park neighborhood.

    She has been a challenge to catch. Thank you, Rebecca and Duane, for your help in relocating Romeo. We hope Juliet will be able to join him soon!

  7. This makes me so happy to see! Thank you for doing exactly what you said you would, which was release him to a place far from people where he can be with other turkeys.
