Gooday Bob and birding-ausers,
Not sure if I done a note to birding-aus about the Brahminy Kite nest I had under observation here at Bowen for the Nest Record Scheme. I found about 30+ Cane Toads directly under the nest all had the soft belly parts removed and a number had become stiff mummified carcasses from the heat and the time that they had met there demise. I never actually saw this species feed on the Cane Toad but the dead CT's beneath the nest seemed to point in there direction.
