Perfect Shot: Arastradero Wild Turkeys

Photographer Frances Freyberg typically enjoys the views of Windy Hill as she’s hiking the Bowl Loop Trail at the Enid Pearson-Arastradero Open Space Preserve in Palo Alto. However, Frances found another reason to be captivated when she encountered a flock of wild turkeys at the western edge of the 644-acre preserve. Although this Perfect Shot captured the turkeys gobbling contentedly in the preserve’s wooded grasslands, they are agile, fast fliers—unlike their domesticated distant relatives.
