Why was that wild turkey throwing dirt up in the air like that?

Home More advice Pets & Animals

This is the second time I've seen this turkey in my yard recently. I saw it sit down by a dead log and it was throwing up dirt in the air with it's feet and/or wings. It would sit for a minute or two and then stand up and look for a minute and sit back down. It did this for several minutes. After that it got up and walked off. It was a female and my yard has 5 acres with plenty of food and water nearby. Do you think it's making a nest?
