Yes, (wild) turkeys can fly...

The furcula ("little fork" in Latin) is a forked bone found in birds and theropod dinosaurs, formed by the fusion of the two clavicles. In birds, its function is the strengthening of the thoracic skeleton to withstand the rigors of flight. Also known as a fourchette, the "wishbone" is a shared, derived characteristic of birds and many dinosaurs.

The furcula is commonly referred to as a wishbone because of the tradition that when two people hold the two sides of the bone and pull it apart, the one who gets the larger part will have a wish granted.
