Orange Footed Scrub Fowls

Most consider them a pest.........they excavate mulch and toss it everywhere in their hunt for food in suburban gardens.

Yet, are they filling a role in turning over the mulch and surface soils, eating army worms and sod worms and generally improving soil quality?

Anyhow....... captured them in action in some photos at our house block over the past week.  If a local I am sure the same scene has been noted if you live in a house, and not an apartment.  Enjoy the action photos.

There are also Torres Strait pigeons nesting in the palms - with one enjoying a bit of sunshine last week.
