On Stewarts Creek in the Daintree I was watching a Scrubwren feeding fledgelings when a Black Butcherbird grabbed one of the chichks and started tearing it apart to feed its fledgling. Suddenly the bank was a flurry of feathers. A Brown Goshaw had taken the Butcherbird young and rolled down the bank before flying off with its prey. A food chain rigth before my eyes in a few lazy moments by a beautiful stream.
