White-breasted Woodswallow (Artamus leucorynchus)

The White-breasted Woodswallow is a common bird in northern Australia and can be seen sitting on power lines in many towns. In warmer months it may wander into inland eastern Australia. Woodswallows hunt insects much like true swallows, however they are not related. They like to be in contact with each other when perching and you can see large numbers huddled together on power lines.
