Hi again Margaret,
Your bird is an adult female White-browed
Woodswallow for those who are not familiar with the species. The male is much
darker and richer in colour and one of my favourite birds. It is a great
shot. It also looks like a couple of Mistletoe berries under its foot.

White-browed woodswallow at NVC
morning there was at least one white-browed woodswallow at the Namadgi
Visitors’ Centre. I saw one, but that was on two occasions, about
50 metres apart, so it may not have been the same bird.
saw a pair of leaden flycatchers, numerous noisy friar birds with dependent
young, a black-faced cuckoo-shrike trying to feed a juvenile with a large hard
beetle which it spat out, and superb fairy wren feeding a juvenile.
