USA 25-CENTS (KM598) Wild turkey

In 2010, the US Mint launched the "America the Beautiful" quarters program. Five quarters will be issued each year through 2020 (and one in 2021), for a total of 56 different designs. Each quarter will depict a national park or site from each of the 50 states, the federal district, and each territory).

Louisiana's coin features Kisatchie National Forest with a Wild turkey in flight. I have seen a herd of these birds launch and fly like a bowling ball launched from a cannon. However, they are apparently very agile flyers covering up to 400 m at a time beneath the forest canopy, very close to the ground.
