I totally agree that people feeding them also has contributed to this Grey 
Butcherbird increase in numbers in recent decades in the suburbs of these 

BUT here's another reason I've thought of that no-one has mentioned as yet...

food for thought...   😊

I also reckon that both Grey and Pied Butcherbirds would have been having a 
great time helping themselves to any dog and cat food of the meaty and fishy 
variety left outside by pet owners too!!!

so I don't think that's it's just down to people feeding these birds

Hello Stephen,

Probably because people feed them!
