… for a glimpse of a White-throated Needletail (aka Spine-tailed Swift).
These birds are occasional visitors during the hotter months, usually seen travelling ahead of storm fronts in search of flying insects. It came as somewhat of a surprise to spot two this morning at the Rise and Shine, against a bright blue sky. One of the birds, the one pictured below behind a veil of eucalypt foliage, almost pulled up over head. Unfortunately I was only able to capture a couple of acceptable shots.
