Birds and Flowers on the Sunshine Coast

Bush Turkey 1

I have been seeing a lot of bush turkeys around lately. They don’t live down south in Victoria where I grew up, so watching them scurrying about is quite novel for me.

I often see them at parks, near the beach and even walking between and under the tables at street cafes!

There are also lots of banksia trees here. Unlike bush turkeys, they are very common in Victoria too.

Growing up, we always called them ‘bottlebrush’ trees. The two pictures are actually of different species (Banksia coccinea and Banksia integrifolia).
