Lucky to spot these flocking birds which stopped briefly in this gum tree.

A couple of immature Black-faced Cuckoo-shrikes.

There were three of them. Is three too many babies for that species? The two below were bigger than the one above and had alot of white on their wings, but happy to change sighting to black-faced cuckoo shrike.

This species not infrequently forms flocks, particularly of migrating birds, or as 'gangs' of immatures. Three birds does not necessarily mean they were fledglings of the same nest.
