Catching up in black and white

Cyclone Yasi didn't blow White-browed Robins (Poecilodryas superciliosa) away from Tyto but did change their behaviour. They now spend more time higher in trees because of stripped and sunnier undergrowth. Today's distant sighting sets black-and-white theme.


Black Butcherbird (Cracticus quoyi) caught out away from shadows at Macknade (near one of my crocodile sites).  


Spangled Drongo (Dicrurus bracteatus) sparkles on pandanus stump in Tyto.

Nice colour theme.
I was impressed with the Black Butcherbird particularly.
Cheers
