Can’t get these feathers wet sweetie

brush turkey hatchling sheltering from rainWell, the brush turkey hatchling has been making herself quite at home. We seem to see and hear her everywhere which seems quite a strange behaviour given how vulnerable she must be to predators. She can be heard and seen quite easily in the leaves to the front of the property as well as behind up near the ponds. One thing we’ve discovered about this chick though – she doesn’t like the rain. Here she is taking a few moments to shelter and dry off those feathers. Matilda must be a bit of a Diva 🙂
