Greetings. A neighbour sent me this photo, writing 'Hi David, found this decapitated bird this am halfway along Ryan’s, what do you think it is and who killed it, an owl?' ('Ryan's' is Ryans Road, Wamboin.)

I suggest that is a Pallid Cuckoo despatched by a Powerful Owl, or perhaps by a Collared Sparrowhawk.

Your suggestions, please - David
