Backyard Butcherbird June 24, 2014 by Jade Craven Leave a Comment I’ve been doing the occasional twitch in the my backyard. I used to live in a very industrial area and now live in a leafy suburb near the river. It’s amazing to see the difference in wildlife. Earlier this year, I captured a butcherbird eating a grasshopper. I love capturing photos of birds eating. I get butcherbirds in the backyard fairly often and love their call.
