Here are some photos of Bay Area wildlife taken in the last month or so. Some wild tom turkeys showing their display. Also caught one in flight. They are better fliers than I would have thought. Landings can be a challenge.

Or as the little kid said to his mom after seeing his first wild turkey landing … “Wild turkey go BOOM!” /Gary

    Turkeys are the land version of the albatross when landing.
