Default [pics] White-browed Woodswallows

A pair of White-browed Woodswallows perched amongst the branches of their enclosure at Healsville Sanctuary.

Olympus E620
Zuiko 70-300mm lens

A little noisy as well, but I was pretty happy with the pose and eye contact.

Very, very nice, Adam. Difficult for me to choose between the two. Love the bokeh in #2, though.

These look like they could be small, jittery birds and hard ro capture...

You did a very good job...!

Nice job Adam. The expression on the bird in the first picture almost looks like it has a scowl on its face!

The bird in the first frame is definitely not having a good day.

By the way, that same bird appears to have red and blue bands around his legs. What's that?

Thanks all!

These are captive birds Zig, I assume they are used for identification or the like.
