From my deck I spotted an outstretched female Wild Turkey far out in my back yard. She started laying on her side and back up, and nest thing I know there is dirt flying around. After researching I realized she was "Dust bathing", a maintenance behavior, removing parasites & maintaining healthy feathers. You gotta love nature!
