Insect control and the GST

This is a shy bird with the nost magical melodic call

Natural Newstead

We often see a Grey Shrike-thrush poking around the garden, but more often hear it announce its presence with beautiful harmonic notes. The ‘GST’ is an insectivore and will happily forage on the ground, through the foliage and in this case under the bark of a Yellow Gum. This one snaffled the cocoon of a cup moth, but I’m not sure there was any nourishment inside … it looks like the moth had already flown!

One thought on “Insect control and the GST

  1. You had me there with that title, Sharon, and it was good to have curiosity rewarded with lovely crisp images made in soft light that makes the most of the subtle plumage of this musical bird. Thank you!
