White-breasted Woodswallow

Artamus leucoryn (Linnaeus, 1771)

The White-breasted Woodswallow (Artamus leucorynchus) is a small passerine bird which breeds from the Andaman Islands east through Indonesia and northern Australia. The name "woodswallow" is a misnomer as they are not closely related to true swallows. Instead, they belong to the family Artamidae, which also includes butcherbirds, currawongs and the Australian Magpie. Source: Wikipedia
