Breakfast, bring your own, Shrike Tit style

Its been awhile since we’ve really been out and about.  The weather has been anything but kind.

So given the options we drove out the gate, turned left and ended up at the You Yangs this morning.

Among other things found a Crested Shrike-tit hard at work looking for a tasty breakfast.

And given the new look on the site, I’ll put up the photos and let them explain.

Think the new wide layout makes the photos cool, but I can’t figure out the spacing.

Be aware of those pincer like jaws that can trim branches in a snap.

There must be something down there somewhere. (and there was)

I have no idea how it knows that there is a grub inside that branch.

Took a bit of work to get the grub exposed.

Well worth all the hard work.

  1. A beautiful series of shots Dave. The colours all work so well together and the subject is appealing, plus it comes with a good story.

    1. Hi Rodger, It was a bit too good to be true. And the bird was working just about head height and after a bit of boldness on my part I managed to get a nice open view of it all.
      glad you liked it.

      I’m not overwhelmed by the layout of the new website, so may well change it again in the not to distant future. I just like simple things.
