Birds in my garden II.....!
more) endemic to Australia. Named thus because when it kills it's prey, which can be anything from insects to small vertebrae creatures like lizards and other birds, it impales it on something sharp like a thorn or something similar to make it easier to eat, or store for later or believe it or not to attract a mate..! Not quite sure which of these it was attempting when it impaled a baby dove on one of the plants on my patio, but believe me it didn't 'attract' me in the slightest..!! The balance of nature can sometimes be tough to witness.....!! Have a great day.
