🦃Have you seen a Brush-turkey?
The Brush-turkeys: Birds in Suburbia project aims to survey the distribution and abundance of Brush-turkeys, understand how they behave in different environments, and educate the community on the natural history and biology of this unique native species.
Citizen scientists can contribute to this project by uploading their observations of Brush-turkeys (adults and chicks), nest mounds and other evidence of Brush-turkey presence. Participants can also learn more about these fascinating birds by sharing observations and knowledge with each other, along with the project team.
Data collected by this project will increase our understanding of the distribution of Brush-turkeys, and the behaviours that enable their re-colonisation of former distributions, in particular, how Brush-turkeys have adapted so quickly to urban environments.
