The Grey Butcherbird occurs in a range of different habitats including arid, semi-arid and temperate zones. It has a characteristic “rollicking” birdsong. It appears to be adapting well to city living, and can be encountered in the suburbs of many Australian cities including Sydney and Brisbane. The Grey Butcherbird preys on small vertebrates including other birds. (Wikipedia)
This particular bird has indeed adapted well and was sited on the balcony of a café eyeing my apple pie at River Heads, Queensland, Australia. The bird was sited next to a timber post which I have cropped out as I took the picture.
