Birds at the AALBG

Grey Butcherbird (Cracticus torquatus)

Lone Butcherbirds will often perch in the upper branches of Myalls and other trees singing with a variety of clear, musical, whistling notes. These birds feed on lizards, insects, rodents and small birds. They sometimes lodge their prey in tree forks to help them in dismembering the bodies.
