Hi there birders,

Last Saturday I was visiting my brother who was holidaying in a caravan park on the southern edge of Murray Bridge in South Australia (80km SE of Adelaide). The park is part of a marina only a few metres from the River Murray.

As we talked I observed a Pied Butcherbird being harassed by Noisy Miners and Australian Magpies. This is the first time I've observed this species so far south along the Murray. The Grey Butcherbird is common in this area, but Pied Butcherbirds are usually seen much further upstream eg Morgan, Waikerie.

Any comments from people familiar with the area, and this species in SA?
