The Butcher Bird is so named because it hangs it's meat (lizards frogs etc.) in forks of trees or impales them on branches for easy dissection.

It's hard to believe this cute baby Pied Butcher Bird cleaning and preening itself here, may one day be called
" The Butcher of Yeronga "

Thankyou Don, I used the K100D with a Sigma 70-300 mm APO lens at 120 mm , 200 ISO , using my new Christmas present the Manfrotto 676B monopod.

Thankyou Royce,
It is not the claws you have to worry about, nor the glint in the eye,
it's the Butchers Hook

Very nice pictures,and thanks for the bird lesson. I've learned so much from everyone here about birds, it's always fun to read what others have to say.
