Grey Butcherbird Cracticus torquatus

I need to see if I have any pictures of this species on my computer. About 12 months ago there were Grey Butcherbirds here in Tenterfield, albeit very small in numbers. I remember seeing just one pair of them and they did breed and only had one offspring. As soon as the juvenile was old enough to fend for itself the adult birds disappeared and I never saw them again.

The juvenile bird became an infrequent weekly visitor until one day it never returned and I haven't seen it since. I have not seen any Grey Butcherbirds since about January/February of this year, and they were resident birds.
