Is this possibly a lesser honeyguide? Seen in my garden in Darling in late December 2014.

I've been puzzling quite a bit over this one :wall: Is it perhaps a whiterumped swift? Seen soaring high above my garden in Darling in late November 2014.

I really haven't a clue what this bird might be :wall: Possibly a juvenile weaver? Seen along Darling Hills Road in late November 2014.
