Immature Pied Butcherbird

http://www.flickr.com/photos/cascadehush/447123589/

I didn’t have to leave my yard to get this shot.

It’s a hand-held shot taken using a Raynox teleconverter. You gotta love image-stabalisation.

When this bird grows up, the brown will turn into a deep black. The distinguishing feature of this species is that the entire head and kneck are dark.
