One of Daddy’s Other Little Mates

Little Snag is the youngest of the Pied Butcherbird family that call around to our house for feeding. He (most likely a boy, because he’s already bigger than his mother) is still clad in the grey-and-brown of a very young bird.

His older sibling, Sossidge, is now a dark brown/white juvenile. The adults are black and white.

Snag is quite clever at finding advantageous placements. He landed on the front gate, just as as Daddy, home from the shops, was opening it. You can’t miss a hungry little bird when he represents!

Here’s Snag making sure he’s not overlooked when Daddy climbs the stairs.

Did I mention he’s also very accurate at catching thrown food?
