The answer to her and any other readers is yes. I've seen a few wild turkeys in Sterling and Great Falls alike. I have also seen them off the Appalachian Trail as it borders Loudoun County, Virginia near Clarke County and also at the land adjacent to the Potomac River near Lowes Island in Virginia.
A camera that I had set up at the end of last year in Sterling, Va, captured one of these turkeys.
The odd thing about this turkey is that it is walking in a spot about 10 feet from the den of a red fox, a predator that could easily take advantage of this opportunity.
Another odd thing is that it is not in a flock. Usually turkeys will travel in a small groups, especially during the colder months of the year.
Maybe this turkey got lost. Maybe it is the only one that survived a series of attacks by predators. Who knows, maybe the camera was triggered by more turkeys, but only snapped a picture of this one.
Wild turkeys feed mostly on small nuts and seeds (acorns, beechnuts, hickory nuts, and grass-grains) and small animals such as insects and slugs.
I believe that this turkey was feeding on a slugs because under just about every single leaf it walked on, lies a buffet of slugs.
Here is another picture from this site to show you where exactly the fox den is.
