He is gorgeous Carole. He has such a presence about him. Carol
fabulous shots, carole! wow!
Great shots of this handsome bird, beautiful detail. I expect by the name, he isn't a vegetarian!
Wonderful shots of the butcherbird. That's a new one for me.
Fantastic shot! Such a cool sighting. :)
I remember lying in bed in just before light in the morning listening to a Grey Butcherbird song. Everything else was silent. A striking memory.
Carole I can vouch for the beautiful song of the butcher birds. We have some that have just returned after an absence. Ours are a black and white bird. They sit up high on the TV antennas or trees and the sound is just wonderful.
Linley; your's over there is perhaps the Pied Butcherbird?
We used to have a butcher bird (a Red-Backed Shrike)in the UK, which shared the habit of impaling prey on thorns as a larder for later consumption. I say "used to" because they are hardly ever seen these days. Your photos are excellent as ever.
Carole, your Butcherbird is awesome..Fantastic closeups! Have a happy day!
Hi Carole,Beautiful shots of the Butcher Bird.The last picture is my favorite.Greetings Irma
neat. would love to hear him sing. ( :
I do love his hefty body and the gleam in his eye! Great shot Carole!
Hi Carole, you did well to snap the Butcher Bird, the ones we see in East Gippsland seem to be too nervous. It may be that the Wattlebirds gang up on them (for good reason unfortunately!). Great shots :D)
Makes you want to adopt, Carole. What beautiful photographs. a kiss
That is one vicious looking beak Carole.
Amazing bird and nice photos!Greetings from Poland/Michał and Piotr
Y'all have such incredible, unique birds in your country!!! I so wish I could see one of these butcherbirds in real time. Fabulous images. That beak looks deadly.
Wonderful shots! I went to the fact sheet to hear him sing. Wish I could see and hear one in person.
Brilliant images, but my fave is number 3, it is superb Carole.
Gorgeous images,Carole! I particularly love the last one. The catch light in his eye is lovely!
What a very interesting beak this bird has. He's lovely and your photos are gorgeous! Thanks Carole :)
Great photos - I often see the Pied Butcherbird around here but have not seen a Grey here yet. I agree about the song - very beautiful!
Very cool looking bird! Love the color and that beak! Great photos!
I'd never heard of a "Butcher Bird" before... Great shots of him!
Really wonderful with all this little details on the head. Amazing !Best regards, Synnöve
Great shots! I'm hearing the call in my head now!
Fabulous photos, so different to the butcher bird that I know from South Africa. Diane
I love seeing birds from other countries and compare them to our own. Great photos to appreciate this bird.. Michelle from Nature Notes...
Looks like he is just waiting for you to snap his picture....good job Carole!!!!Jan
Fabulous shots of a beautiful bird.
Just brillant shots Carole, especially the last one of course.Interesting that yours is a Butcherbird capital "B" whereby our UK shrike which used to breed here the Red-backed Shrike was always known as a butcherbird, small "b". It's all about them hanging their meat up for later consumption.Yes, the Chiffchaff is so named after its "chiff-chaff" repeated song phrace.
Fabulous shots of this bird. I really like the intent look and that beak is quite impressive.
What a fab looking bird, just great to see these images and it sings too, nice~
