Abstract:The wild turkey is a non-native species at the center of debate in California. Biologists question whether the bird is invasive since remains of a similar species of turkey were found in the La Brea Tar Pits of Los Angeles County. Answering this question requires assessing whether or not turkeys cause ecological damage within California's ecosystems. This thesis addresses a non-native Rio Grande wild turkey population established within a preserve. No research had previously been conducted to identify the basic ecological requirements, effects, and habitat selection of this non-native species. This study was conducted under the auspices of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (MROSD) in order to assess wild turkey habitat selection and activity patterns. In this study, turkeys were observed over four times more frequently within open fields and yellow star thistle (Centaurea solstitialis )-dominated habitat relative to other habitat types. Turkeys also showed seasonal shifts, which included movement out of the preserve in the winter.
