Woodswallow families

One of my favourite visitors, the White-breasted Woodswallow, has bred successfully again this season around the margins of Cairn Curran.

I came across a small party last evening at Joyce’s Creek – a number of juveniles attracted my attention initially with their noisy begging calls, as the parents hawked for insects in the surrounding air.

  1. Delightful photographs Geoff. The blue, grey and white palette is simple yet striking, so different to the Latham’s Snipe shots showing wonderful camouflage colours. It’s a joy to open your posts.

  2. Don’t know if it was intentional but you had “White-browed” in the first sentence.
