    Hawthorne, where I live, is an inner suburb of Brisbane, maybe 4 km from
the city centre, as the Egret flies.  Occasionally on an early morning walk
I have seen a scrub turkey in our street.  Yesterday there were three ...
and one was less than half adult size.

Somewhat surprising, I thought, for it would be about a kilometre to the
nearest park with any native bush, and that, being fairly open euc forest, I
hadn't regarded as suitable scrub turkey mound-building habitat.  Wonder if
some lucky suburbanite has a garden big enough?
