HI Carole Brilliant shots and commentary. Made me smile. Never seen this bird. Would love to, it is only in your part of Australia? By the way the sign in the next post is great.

What beautiful swallows! Love your captions! LOL!

Christian Perrin said...

Love the captions, but they are also very good photos of a bird I've never seen before. I didn't realise the sexes look different in this species, the White-breasted Woodswallow that I'm familiar with doesn't work that way.

I also liked how suddenly the male appears on the other side of the female!
