Sun 14 Apr Black Butcherbird Territory Wildlife Park/Darwin N.T
Moderator Note: Although this is a commonly seen species around Darwin; This report is published for its interesting information for a species observation. If you ever want to see Black Butcherbirds up close...just go to the aquarium area at territory wildlife park, and in the trees next to the footpath that leads to the aquarium is two WILD Black Butcherbirds that allow for close proximity. They are always there no matter when i go..a month and a half has past since my last visit and on Sunday they were still there :D
