Black-breasted buzzard (Hamirostra melanosternon)

The black-breasted buzzard (Hamirostra melanosternon) is a large raptor endemic to mainland Australia.

Healesville Sanctuary Raptor show. These guys have learnt to crack open emu
eggs with stones. This one eventually got his fake egg open, but I never
managed to get a picture of the stone: it had always bounced off by the time
I focussed and snapped! Betty
