Silver-backed Butcherbird (Cracticus argenteus)

Silver-backed Butcherbird (Cracticus argenteus), Pine Creek, Northern Territory, Australia

 

Ebird checklist:

The silver-backed butcherbird looks similar to the Grey butcherbird, except its back is lighter and silvery.

 

It is a part-time predator but insects are also taken. It feeds on small lizards such as skinks and mice along with small birds that it snares and plucks out of the sky.
