What's on the morning menu?


Snail for White-browed Crake (Amaurornis cinerea).

Stillborn katydid(?) for Macleay's Honeyeater (Xanthotis macleayanus)

Red Tie Bush (Wikstroemia indica) fruit  for Brown Cuckoo-Dove (Macropygia amboinensis)

And a feast in bulk, insects for the Cattle Egrets and the cane for us.

Snail said...

I was trying to work out what species of snail that crake is about to nom on, but I've given up. So, nice pics! Love the slightly manic cuckoo-dove.

I'd climb into the tertiary treatment pond and scour the Salvinia for more samples - if I were snail and not Tyto. WBC doesn't care, so long as they keep coming for breakfast.
