A Currawong 'parent' feeding it's Channel-billed cuckoo chick. I found the other parent nearby with a head injury. I assume the injury was from the Cuckoo. It is quite enthusiastic about trying to coax more food out of it's parents.

Thanks for the explanation. I was wondering what was happening in those images. The "parent" looked like it was being voluntarily eaten.
Excellent capture of the interaction.
