barker's nest

a pile of dog droppings: While I was walking in the park, I nearly stood in a barker's nest. Compare barker's egg.

Contributor's comments: Dog excreta in a tussock. When walking through a paddock with a friend, you might say - "Don't tread in the barker's nest over there." Note this is a Tasmanian term not heard elsewhere.

Contributor's comments: We used the term "barker's nest" in Melbourne in 1976, but we also called dried up white dog's faeces "caspers", they were white, and the ghost of a former dog turd.

Contributor's comments: I recall that my grandmother (who grew up in regional Qld and Brisbane) used this term.
