Bush turkeys are plentiful in the scrub around Noosa. Although still living in the wild they have become scavengers and harass tourists for food.

I was invited by Judy Dykstra-Brown to take up the gauntlet and participate in a 7 day nature posting challenge. As part of the challenge I am to nominate a person on each of the seven days I post a photograph. They are under no obligation to join in but wonderful if they do.

Today I invite Norah Colvin from Live, Love, Laugh, Learn …..Create the Possibilities  to join the nature photo challenge if she would like to.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  1. This guy must have pulled a red mask over his head and neck, ending in that flouncy yellow ruff. Or did his mama send him out looking like that?

  2. Maybe a bush turkey’s face is red because he’s embarrased to be seen in this yellow ruffle. Hmmm…I’ve never seen a bush turkey before. What a privilege. Thanks for sharing, Irene. You have terrific photos and often share a mini album on a theme. You’re amazing.
