Hello all

I have had a couple of familys of Pied Butcherbirds living at our home for 7 
years.  This morning about 4:50am I observed one doing something I've never 
done before and I watch them every day.

The bird hovered above the ground about 10 meters for a full 10 seconds.  
He/she didn't hover like a black shouldered kite or letter wing kite but like a 
humming bird ... as in the upright position.  The wings were going a hundred 
miles an hour !

Has anyone ever seen this before.
