Juvenile Grey Butcherbird

While looking for a couple of recently reported Boobooks along  Elster Creek today, I came across this young Grey Butcherbird. It was hunting in the school veggie patch. They eat a variety of food including other small birds. The brown and yellow feathering indicates a juvenile. I often hear and see these birds around the neighbourhood but this my first pic of a local bird.

  1. What a wonderful songster she is- I caught sight of her just once, but woke up to her carolling every morning on the eucalypt outside my window for years! Thanks for this cute pic!
