We kept on getting dead toads in the middle of the concrete parking lot out the front of work. The whole premises is surrounded by high security fences but lying in the centre of the yard would be these toads on their backs with all their guts hanging out. We thought vandals/kids/hoons/whatever had been throwing them over the fence so we checked the security camera footage. The crows had been swooping down and flipping the cane toads onto their backs and then pecking their bellies until they exposed the guts, have a quick feed and then fly off again. They were smart enough to know to stay away from the poison on the toads backs and only eat the soft parts underneath.The Raven pics are great!
That can only happen if the night is filled with white light, which would require a flash. Might be a way to locate fresh scat.wouldn't be great for trail cams to have full colour night vision
