This is the butcherbird who ate those willy wagtail eggs. Seen through a window and insect screen and looking far too complacent, damn it.

In other news, a load of vealers (calves) went off to the abattoir first thing this morning, soon to become breakfast, lunch or dinner for a few humans, who, unlike the butcherbird, will never have to face the parents of the creatures they eat.
