Abstract

In October 2015 a male Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus australis) was seen stalking, catching, killing and eating an Australasian Grebe (Tachybaptus novaehollandiae) at Hasties Swamp National Park, northern Queensland. This appears to be only the third record in Australia and the first in Queensland of predation on a waterbird. Detailed photographs are included.
