Fowl play: Turkey turmoil at NASA center in California

A flock of wild turkeys has gotten a little too interested in space exploration, so a NASA facility is helping the hefty birds explore a nice reserve instead.

NASA’s Ames Research Center in California just south of San Francisco covers some 500 acres and hosts scientists working on topics from exoplanets to flight technology — as well as, lately, about two dozen rowdy turkeys, according to reports from local news agencies. Ames has called in the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to attempt to relocate the birds to San Antonio Valley Ecological Reserve, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of the space center.
