Australian scrub brush turkey on beach

Scrub turkey, Alectura lathami IMG 0493 - The scrub or brush turkey is a common visitor at many forest camping areas where, rather than scratching among leaf litter for the worms, insects, and other small creatures that form a major part of its natural diet, it arrogantly helps itself to any unattended food. This bird, near a camping area on Queensland's Inskip Point (close to the popular coastal holiday destination of Rainbow Beach), was meandering along the beach in search of tiny figs and other native fruits that the wind and the ocean may have deposited on the sand.
