Author's notes

I saw this quiet Grey Butcherbird again. This is a repeat observation at this location. I thought I had disturbed it as it flew off when I was close but it just flew to the ground. I think it may have been getting food but I could not see clearly. It then perched in a small tree not far from me before flying north to Red Hill itself.
