White-browed Woodswallow

Artamus superciliosus

CONSERVATION STATUS

Least Concern

Woodswallows often form flocks clumping closely together when roosting in colder weather. They can be found in eucalypt forests, woodlands, dry heaths and spinifex as well as farmlands, orchards and towns.

WHAT THEY EAT

Woodswallows mostly eat insects. They hawk out of midair or find them while foraging on the ground. They have a brush-tipped tongue they can use to feed on nectar from flowers.

BREEDING

Both males and females build a shallow nest of twigs and grass. They alternate incubating the two eggs and feed the hatchlings together.
