Brush turkey

(Science: zoology) a large, edible, gregarious bird of australia (talegalla Lathami) of the family Megapodidae. Also applied to several allied species of new guinea.

The brush turkeys live in the brush, and construct a common nest by collecting a large heap of decaying vegetable matter, which generates heat sufficient to hatch the numerous eggs (sometimes half a bushel) deposited in it by the females of the flock.
