Black Faced Cukooshrike - Australian Wildlife

Another first this week is photographing my first Black-faced Cukooshrike.

This bird is an omnivorous bird, and at first, it reminded me of the minor birds in the region with a similarly shaped beak. It will eat insects and also search for plants with fruits, sugary flowers, and lots more. In general, this bird is listed in the engendered wildlife act of 1974. Today the bird is listed as a least of concern for conservationists. However; it is important to mention that this is the first time that I have seen one. As I step further into the wild bushland of the central region of Australia, I hope to uncover more surprises as I go.
