Like the picture in the tree. The bird looks reasonable in size.

Such a sweet looking little bird.
His color sure helps him blend in with the tree.
Lovely series of shots Carole!

Those are gorgeous shots of this Grey Butcherbird, Carole!!! I love the progression showing him having a nice lunch on the cicada or whatever he's eating! Amazing that you could get so close, or perhaps you have a fine zoom lens! I love your photos!

A great series of photos of the juvenile Grey Butcherbird. I see Pied Butcherbirds around my place - but no Greys.

I swear your birds and their beaks are much larger than I'm used to seeing around here!
