Just an item from this week's ACT Hotline, again on the assumption that many
people won't be looking at that posting.

I have just had reported to me a sighting of a Brush Turkey (reported by
Hugh Tindale-Biscoe, formerly Chief CSIRO Wildlife) from Monga State Forest,
near Braidwood, somewhat south of east of Canberra. While this is in its
historic range, it is a very long time since they were reported there.

It is on the edge of the escarpment, a heavily logged forest of wet
sclerophyll and temperate Pinkwood (Eucryphia moorei) rainforest.

Does anyone know more of this, or of any other B-Ts from anywhere near as
far south?
