It could be feeding of dependent young but an unlikely time of year. I suggest no reason to think it would be, without other indications. They do like to hang food on wedges in branches to help them pull it apart.

While golfing today, a Grey Butcherbird flew low across the fairway in front of me towards the bike path to Warrina Inlet with a huge grub in its bill.
Would that be feeding of dependent young or just food to go?
