With regards to birds being attacked/killed by other birds.  I
recently had the good fortune to do some bird surveys at 80 Mile
Beach, and the manager there told us that the local Pied Butcherbirds
were a terror to any night birds that came in to roost in the day.  He
said he'd buried at least one tyto owl (we suspect Barn Owl), plus
many tawny frogmouths.  We actually found a dead Tawny under a tree
while we were there.  He also said they kill any Kingfishers that come
in during the day.
