That hook on the tip of the beak must serve some useful purpose. Yes, the self-timer. I usually forget to bring along the remote shutter release then continue on with the pattern of forgetting the camera has a self-timer. I have those days.

The butcherbirds are very active and always come close. We many like this here in the garden.

Pied Butcherbirds take great shots, don't they? We have had a family spending Summer in our yard. The young ones are quite bold and come right up to the back door.
Great shots!
