I’ve been coming across some odd holes in the bush tracks in my neighbourhood.  
They are about 30 cm across and 15 cm deep [not your average bandicoot or pig 

I came across a female looking bush turkey sitting in a fresh hole, dug about 
100 metres from the nearest active mound.  It looked rather dusty, and I 
suspect it was dusting.  Is this a common turkey behaviour?

Regards, Laurie.
