Hi all

Can anybody identify this bird with the limited information and the attached silhouette for a friend of mine? the picture he sent me was 620Kb, so I cropped it.  However, there wasn't much in the way of additional information in the original!

Hi Lia

I'm in the northern rivers of NSW and I'm struggling to identify a bird that I saw at Frederickton, near Kempsey. I wondered if you might have any ideas? Apologies for the photo, I only had my phone handy:

The closest I can get on my Morcomb app is a Fork-tailed Swift, however, it was glossy jet black without any white patches, it seems a bit big, the tail seems a bit too long, the beak seems too big and its the wrong time if year. Apart from that, it's a perfect Fit!
