Bird of the Week: 6th Jan - food

Hi all - getting this up a few hours early as I won't be near a computer all day tomorrow (monday).

 

Over the Christmas holidays food is a big theme (or rather, overindulgence maybe...) so lets see your photos of birds feeding or something that could be bird food.

Black-winged Stilts  feed mainly on aquatic insects, but also eat crustaceans and molluscs.

Tisn't the greatest photo in the world (with a little cropping), but in fairness she was right up the top of the canopy. Was quite chuffed to finally see one. 

Female Paradise Riflebird with a couple of items for lunch. (some sort of bug and a spider by the looks)
