Bird of the Week Challenge: 28th June - carnivore carnival

Hi all

Apologies for being a day late again! I spent yesterday at 5 schools in northern Sydney talking to them (year 4's and a year 9 class) about the Glossy Black-Cockatoo and a project they are about to undertake on them. A fantastically fun but exhausting day.


OK lets go to an easy theme this week - share your photos of carnivorous birds!

Juvenile Grey Butcherbird learning its butchering. Any guesses as to what it's trying to eat?

Great photo Tim. A bird I haven't had the pleasure of meeting myself.

Here is a great night carnivore.

Rick, your post made me laugh.

Thanks Graham.

This White-faced Heron is showing that its a carnivore:

Fish make up 99% of the Osprey's diet but will occasionally prey on rodents, rabbits, hares, amphibians and other birds.

Definitely a carnivore! I even saw one go after a year-old wallaby (without success).
