When on Kangaroo Island recently we went to a birds of prey demonstration. I showed some photos of the birds earlier.
This bird – the Black Breasted Buzzard was very impressive. He hasn’t got his black breast yet because he’s still young, but it will come.
They have a clever trick when they want to eat an emu egg.
They find a little stone and break the egg.
It might take them a few goes but they get there in the end.
Apparently this is completely instinctual, not taught by their parents. Clever huh?
