We had 3 juvenile Brush Turkeys in our Turramurra garden area (apartments and 
town houses a hectare or more of gardens) located between The Chase & Tennyson 
Rds.  We first observed them in early December and saw them virtually daily 
until first week of February.  Prior to that  over the last few years we've had 
the occasional adult (or two) wandering around in the garden.  On walks in the 
Turramurra / Wahroonga / North Wahroonga / Waitara area (streets not fire 
trails) we've seen adult birds in several locations throughout 2012 (and 
previous years) but once again none since early February.   Only exception has 
been a single juvenile and an adult behind Kissing-Point Rd shops last week.   
We had almost decided that they're more common in suburban streets than in the 
local bushland but wonder where they've all gone at present.  One possible idea 
is that they've followed the creeks down into the valleys in the hotter 
weather.  The only supporting evidence we have for this is a r
 oad-killed juvenile in Tennyson Rd near the creek bridge.
