The official wild game bird of Alabama is the Eastern Wild Turkey, and was approved by the Alabama Legislature on May 28th, 1980 via Act No. 80-734.  Wild Turkey are one of the most common big game birds in the United States and can be wildly found in many states in the US. Due to over hunting Wild Turkey in Alabama there became a shortage, but due to restocking programs in Alabama in the 1940s, Alabama now has one of the largest populations of Turkey on the country.
