Surprise before the rain, chasing after this forktail. The more I try to get close, the further it runs in the opposite direction. Not so clear picture as light is fading with the dark clouds moving in. Record shot of this lifer.

After the rain, heard some noises up on the tree. Finally located this pair of parent and child feeding. Lifer.

Air Banum Tree Swift

Lifer, along the RPS Air Banum. Sky was getting dark, with the clouds moving in. After finishing the photo shoot, it rained cats and dogs.

I realise the next day, the other half was nesting on another tree beside. This bird distracted me from finding its mate. Sitting silently the camouflage work very well for them.

Whiskered Treeswift
Hemiprocne comata
