Birds of Australia
Common Name: Pied Butcherbird
Scientific Name: Cracticus nigrogularis
The first time I heard the call of a Pied Butcherbird I was in Long Jetty, I followed the call and found him at the top of a tree at Picnic Point in The Entrance. Unfortunately I had binoculars and not a camera with a telephoto lens, Jiliby, Dec 2009.
The young Pied Butcherbird are a grey colour until they get their full pied colours.
