While at Hattah/Kulkyne NP in NW Vic last weekend (more details to come!) I witnessed a lone Australian Raven perched on a water tank in the Lake Mournpall campground. It then swooped onto the ground and became involved in a tussle on the ground with something as though it were attacking a very mobile prey. After probably no more than 5 seconds the ?prey? ran out of the grass toward me - a rabbit !!
Is this a normal diet for Ravens? Has anyone else seen them attacking live bunnies? (Not that I am complaining at all!)
