photographing and learning about wildlife
We saw four cute little baby brush turkeys scratching around in leaf litter in the park at Marcoola Beach. Brush turkeys grow quite large and many people consider them pests as they are quite bold and build enormous nests (sometimes the size of a small car!!) by raking together a huge mound of leaves, mulch and dirt, which can be quite damaging to gardens! The third shot in this series shows the big rake-like feet.
