Another Australian Brush-turkey

Post by sburke » Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:32 am

Morning all,

When driving up our driveway to go to work this morning I disturbed a female Brush-turkey, only the second I have seen here in the last three years and both within the last month or so, which then flew across the car and into McEwan State Forest. It flew very high into an ironbark and then into another ironbark some 20 metres away. I have never seen a Brush-turkey fly so high, probably 15 metres up.

Nature continues to surprise.
