PLACES: If you live on the Sunshine Coast (Queensland, Australia), particularly around Noosa as I do, you will know the Bush Turkey (pictured). We call it the Bush Chook. 'Locals' see it as a pest because it scratches up garden beds and spreads mulch from one end to another, but I find it rather amusing. They strut around the undergrowth, make a dash across Hastings Street like something out of Roadrunner and climb trees to bed down for the night. A bird with attitude!
