Bush Turkey Payback – #shorts

After the bush turkey demolished my garden, I figured it was time for payback. Bush turkeys make their nests by scratching leaves and twigs and bark together into a huge compost pile. When it heats up (as composts do) the female will lay her eggs in the mound. The male then protects the nest from predators and regulates the heat until the chicks hatch. Then the compost just becomes part of the forest unless it becomes part of my garden.

Next year it will make a new one from scratch, but in the same spot as always. The pile just gets bigger and bigger over time.
