Not the best wildlife shot I know but this amazing bird was circluing the house being chased by the Butcher Bird for severial minutes I'm thinking it might be a Pallid Cuckoo ? judgeing by the one and only book I have on native birds......

Hello Rick,
Welcome to TN!
Nice start with this action shot of what looks like a Grey Butcherbird chasing a Square-tailed Kite. This is a sharp and well composed shot but maybe the colours are a bit oversaturated.
Look forward to seeing more from you!
Thanks for sharing this one,
Regards, Ivan

Hi Rick,
You had a bad luck abut the weather and the light, and it is very difficult to get details from inflight shots in such conditions. But I like the action you caught a lot. TFS
Best wishes,

hi Rick,
great shot...being there...at the right moment...
