Then this is a very special spotting :) I have these wetlands that I go to as often as possible and (hopefully not jinxing it!) every time, thus far, I have seen a butcherbird!...only have the pied butcherbird my way :)

Thanks armadues, cheeky birds, often hear their call but don't often see them.
