White-Breasted Woodswallow Video Stock Footage
This woodswallow's soft-plumage is charcoal grey apart from the white underparts that give the species its English and scientific names, in contrast to the related great woodswallow whose upper side is a more glossy black. Despite its brush-tipped tongue, usually associated with nectar feeders, it catches insects on the wing. The species was first described by Linnaeus in 1771, its specific epithet derived from the Ancient Greek words leukos 'white', and rhynchos 'bill'.
