This is a Scrub Turkey or Brush turkey who is busy building a nest. They build huge nests up to 1.5 meters in height,the nest is made from of leaves and debris. The male turkey constantly checks the temperature of the nest with his beak keep the temperate between 33-35 degrees, he removes or add leaves to the nest to regulate the temperature.
All very fascinating how animals and nature work.they are amazing!! we have to read a thermometer to know how hot it is??
