butcher bird

This butcher bird seemed to like me. It seemed to be trying to communicate with me. It came very close to me and was not afraid. It may just have wanted to be fed. I tried feeding it birdseed, but it didn't like it. It ate a little bread. It would throw the bread to the ground, as if trying to kill it. I later learned that these birds are carnivorous.
