One thing the Sunshine Coast is not short of is scrub turkeys.
This particular one is in the carpark at Peregian Beach but they are fairly common throughout the area.
Whilst staying in our B&B at Flaxton I used to watch them each evening as they ascended in stages to the heights of the rainforest trees in order to nest for the night.
During the daytime they scratch and scrape through the leaf litter for assorted items of vegetable or insect matter or scrounge scraps off the tourists. Either way, they don't go hungry.
