Ashy Wood-swallows in the local rice paddy

Ashy Woodswallow
Artamus fuscus

There was a time in the not too distant past when I would have been unable to get a decent shot of these Ashy Wood-swallows. My recent discovery of the histogram was a major help to me here. These birds are abundant and often huddle together in significant numbers on wires which can make a pretty picture. Tonight they were facing the setting sun so I really had conditions in my favour. Not much else to report but great weather and light.
