A hungry Grey Currawong

On a long weekend stay at Daylesford, I went for an early morning walk around the lake. I had been getting up early to try and find a Nankeen Night Heron still hunting. I did find one and enjoyed excellent views but it was too dim to take any decent pics. While walking back to the house I came across a Grey Currawong. I usually see Pied Currawongs around my own area but only see Greys when I go down the  Mornington Peninsula or into Central Victoria. The Grey has a very distinctive call quite different to the Pied. I watched this bird hunt for grubs under the bark of a dead tree. It was very determined and was quite happy to ignore me as I worked around the tree looking for better shots.
