AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Looks completely innocent to me!

Well captured....they are called butcher birds as they kill their prey and then hang it in a fork of a tree! That cute bird has a mean beak! One of these birds killed a pet budgie when I was a child and somehow managed to suspend it between the bars of the cage even though it was outside the cage and the budgie obviously, inside it!!
