Observation details

Continuing bird. One perched on snag upon my arrival. Sat on snag looking around; fanned out its wings appearing to sun itself; preened for much of the time. Flew off and captured an insect (locust?) and came back to the snag to eat it. A second bird was seen soaring overhead, circled and headed in a southerly direction.
