Wild Turkeys on the Lam in OC

Local artist Art Guevara finds some Thanksgiving survivors gobbling on a local trail.

Reader and local artist Art Guevara shared this photo with us. He writes:

When my friends told me about wild turkeys in San Juan Capistrano, I thought they were talking about the Bourbon Whiskey, and I say, "No way, Jose."

So I packed my gear and I went to see if I could find them and see them with my own eyes. After three days, I heard them gobbling. So I prepared my camera, and the rest is history.

I was able to talk the turkeys into posing for me so I can share them with you.

Their location? Cleveland National Forest, San Mateo Trail.

Cool pic. Wonder how they got there? If I'm not mistaken they look fairly mature & larger than the ones I've seen being raised for food. Did they escape or were they released? A mystery.
