The BRUSHTURKEYS app is all about Australian Brushturkeys extending their natural habitat, which usually includes rainforests and woodlands, to suburban areas.

The brushturkey is a fascinating bird for Citizens and Scientists alike.

Once a rare species due to overhunting, the Australian Brush-turkey is now commonly found in urban areas on Australia’s east coast. They are large birds with a wingspan of about 85 cm, black feathers and a red head. The males build huge nest mounds on the ground out of leaves, twigs, and other compostable material, which are then visited by local females, for mating and egg-laying.
With the app, you can gather sightings on the Australian Brush-turkey and observe their behaviour. Your observations help to understand better how these birds adapt to their surroundings.
