Wild Bush Turkeys


Photos at various angles of an Australian Bush Turkey (Alectura lathami) scavenging for food.

These unusual looking black, yellow and red coloured birds with rather large clawed feet, eat the scraps from the forest floor providing a useful recycling service, aerating the leaf litter and adding valuable compost and nutrients to the soil. This album of pictures is a selection of different poses and angles of one turkey photographed in the wild in a national park. The Australian Bush Turkey is often called the Scrub Turkey or Brush Turkey and is commonly found in bushland on the east coast of Australia. We see them regularly, though they can be a little elusive if too many people are around.
