Hi Micheal,Hi All,
After taking note of your thoughts, and checking through my Simpson And Day guide, i have come to the conclusion that the woodswallows with juveniles were indeed Masked.
Page 246 of the 5th edition guide shows that the Black Faced Woodswallow is generally found north of the Great Divide. As far as iam concerned i along with 3 others had ample time to observe the birds which were not to concerned with our presence. The males were much more of a bluish grey than smoky brown and clearly had a black face. Can i add the absence of white streak on the outer edge of the primaries. Also according to the La Trobe Uni Reserve Web Page: http:/www.latrobe.edu.au/www/wildlife/birds.html ,
Masked Woodswallows are found in the area. As for the comparison to Starlings, i meant regarding the size and shape in flight not plumage or characteristics. Anyway this is great feedback not criticism!
