Grey Treepie Feeding on Cicada

On 10-June, I spotted a Grey Treepie (Dendrocitta formosae formosae, 樹鵲 ) feeding on a cicada at NCKU (National Cheng Kung University) in Tainan.

Grey Treepie is an endemic sub-species in Taiwan. The cicada is identified as Cryptotympana atrata  (紅脈熊蟬).

Happy Birding. Keep Watching, Keep Listening and Keep Exploring.
