This young Pied Butcherbird landed on a perch where I was expecting to photograph some visiting bee-eaters. I liked the earthy tones of its coloration and the background – need some rain to green things up.

This bold specimen hung around our camp on the edge of a wetland. We did not feed it as it was catching plenty of lizards and insects on its own. We also saw this bird make a fast raid on an unattended Peewee nest and fly off with one of the eggs. Nikon D7200, Nikkor 300mm, 1/800 sec, f-9, ISO-250
This juvenile Pied Butcherbird was surprisingly tame and hung around our garden for several days, providing many photo-ops.
