PHOTOS: Giant python goes for fowl rooftop feast

IT'S not often you get to see nature in action on your neighbour's roof but that is what happened for Ray Elley

The Riverside Village resident at Doonbah was told by his neighbours that there was a python on their tv aerial so he raced and got his camera.

"The python was waiting for birds to land on the aerial before he attacked," he said.

"He had the bird in his mouth when he was attacked by a noisy minor, a willy wagtail and it was the kookaburra that made him drop it."

The snake wasn't giving up on a feed, however, and eventually went back to have his feast.
