Australian Brush-turkey Gallery

Alectura lathami
Every year Wombolly has a visit from these very distinctive and colourful birds.  Usually one stays around off and on for about a month, scavenging for seed by pecking on the back door to let us know it's there.  Occasionally, we get a visit from a male bird after he's spent a very busy time buidling a huge nesting mound, mating with a number of females, and then single-handedly keeping his mound at the right temperature to incubate the eggs, by adding and removing leaf material.  He looks a sorry sight, very dusty, dirty and bedraggled, usually with with feathers missing or out of place.  Click on images to enlarge.
