Yesterday, I was traveling in the car and had my camera with me when I saw this bird sitting on the electricity wires. Until now I have only had brief and distant views of these birds. The name comes from the blue-white wing spot seen under the wings when the bird is flying but this one did not oblige by flying and letting me see the spot. My birding book says they are summer migrants to Australia from Papua New Guinea and E. Indonesia.
