White-breasted Woodswallow

White-breasted Woodswallow - Tirjup Layazng-Layang Dada Putih (Malay)
Artamus leucorynchusBirding place : Kampung Jepak, Bintulu ; 10 March'15

Its grey body and white breast is all too characteristic of the bird.  Saw three this afternoon at a beach location near Kampung Jepak.  They kept on doing their respective sorties but would finally perch on this particular dead tree.  Woodswallows seemed a strong and hardy bird.  They will harass birds, animals or even human that are in the way of their hunt.  They are seen normally in small numbers perching on electrical cables along village or country roads.  They are a common resident throughout Borneo from Bintulu to Kuching.
