Whilst at Cheynes Beach (SW WA) recently a friend and I took some photos
of a male Southern Emu-wren on top of a bush.
Subsequent examination of his photos show some sort of food
in the bill.

I've uploaded one of his photos to

in case anyone here has an idea what the prey item might be.
I think I've ruled out Aardvark and Tapir so far, but could perhaps
be persuaded otherwise...

Many thanks
