Yes the correction would be right, though I wouldn’t have put a name to the first photo but given it appears to be on the same branch is presumably the same bird as on the 2nd one, which looks like Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike. I suspect Mark was just too hasty first time, as I was a little surprised at the suggestion.

I think Nicki is correct with the first two, Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike rather than Dusky Woodswallow.

As a new birdwatcher I'm using my limited camera skills to build a list of the species on my property at Forbes Creek near Hoskinstown. My list so far, based on an OK photo of each or for the Boobook & Whipbird a convincing sound recording, is attached. I have a few I can't work out, Can anyone please tell me what the birds in the photos are.
