In Atherton NQ last week I came across a single neatly snipped-off wing
which belonged to a White-cheeked Honeyeater.  At first I assumed a cat
ate the remainder, but when I think of it, cats seem to leave behind a
scattering of loose feathers after their feast.  I know a pair of
barkings owls lives along the creek which is in close proximity to where
the solitary entire wing was found.
