Brush turkey

Brush" tur`key

(). (Zol.) A large, edible, gregarious bird of Australia (Talegalla Lathami) of the family Megapodid. Also applied to several allied species of New Guinea.
[1913 Webster]

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.
[1913 Webster]
