A week or so ago a brush-turkey pecked at a couple of my (extremely hot) habanero peppers that were in a pot in my garden. The next time I saw it, the brush-turkey looked like this (see photo attached). Is this some weird reaction to very hot chilli, or have the local kids been using it for paintball target practice? Or perhaps it’s a side effect of coronavirus in birds. Since then the brush turkey seems to have gone into hiding!
