CommentPerched on a Gum tree which provided some kind of shelter from the heat, this bird continuously "scanned" the ground with its big eyes and sort of glided towards an eventual prey. After many unsuccessful attempts, he finally sat quietly up in the tree and it was the right moment to capture it, its powerful beak half opened. He was not laughing!
