2x ID please

I found two birds today that I don't know. One looks like a Dusky Woodswallow - or maybe Little Woodswallow?

(They are pretty blurry, I was a long way off).

Also this one - I have no idea. Can anyone help?

Black-faced Monarch ??? Doesn't seem right and the call it made was nothing like it. Sounded more like a rufous whistler.
Regards Roger

Hi Roger - you had an extra http in there so I edited it for you.

Second one is a fan-tailed cuckoo: http://birdsinbackyards.net/species/Cacomantis-flabelliformis

The first one - I think Dusky

Thanks Holly, you fixed it while I was trying to figure it out!

I agree - likely Dusky Woodswallow (white on outer wings, so not a Little?) + Fan-tailed Cuckoo :)
Cheers,
Scott.
