Hi Birders,
In response to both Colin Driscoll and Syd Curtis, I am able to say that
Lyrebirds and Brush Turkeys co-exist in a numerous locations on the NSW
Central Coast. Generally speaking Lyrebirds feed along the slopes of the
hills and the Brush Turkeys are in the valley bottoms, like at Mill Creek,
Dharug NP but they both overlap in such areas. Brush Turkeys are more likely
to range widely across urban gardens and backyards that Lyrebirds do, where
forest, parks and reserves butt up against urban backyards. This however
does not necessarily mean that they nest near each other, rather that the
Brush Turkey's nest mound could be within the feeding territory of a Superb
