User's notes

There was a dead tree not far off the track which seemed to attract two species of woodswallows. There were at least three Masked Woodswallows in the tree. They seemed to be reasonably static compared to the White-browed Woodswallows. The first photograph is of a female. The middle photograph could be an adult male who has fluffed his feathers up to warm himself, perched up the tree branch from a White-browed Woodswallow. The final photo appears to be an immature woodswallow.
