@Dimitrios: Ah Ha! Very astute of you D! In fact she is a robber, this Wattle bird. I have a magpie who comes daily to take bread from my hand. Wattle-birds always hang around magpies. They are bird opportunists. They steal what is not guarded. My magpie lost this morsel in an unguarded moment. I have some photos of aggressive displays between them .... perhaps tomorrow?
