Watch out for big Black Butcherbird

Black Butcherbird (Cracticus quoyi) flies from Willie Wagtails furious and fearful at its invasion of their Tyto territory. Their nearby nesting young survived.

But not this obscured near full-fledged Yellow Honeyeater snatched from its nest in spite of desperate defence by outmuscled parents.

Better times - and better image - for another Yellow Honeyeater (Lichenostomus flavus) foraging in the wetlands.
