Interesting, but you need more details from your Mother.
Now For our US experts (Phagey etc). In Oz We drive on the LHD of the Road, in Right Hand Drive cars, so she has her right arm outside the window
somehow. Also the Direction described is Due East, No Sunset in the East. This is early morning Sunrise...If it was Winter, it would be about
7.30am....if it was Summer it would be about 5.30am...we need more Info. Im trying to think of what native bird would be out that way. But most local
birds are just starting to wake and stir at Sunrise, I certainly havent seen any in tightly formed flocks as this photo may show. As the OP says, I
doubt someone would slow way down to take a picture of Birds, without knowing they were birds.
We definitely need more info..eg How did she definitely take the photo? It takes a while to grab the phone, find the media gallery, select camera,
reach out car and maybe look a lcd image first, then take photo, SO how long was the object in her view, How fast was it travelling, did it change
direction, Did she observe it till it disappeared into the ether capatious. ??????? Lots more info to come, we hope.
I use to work at Naracoorte once......Ccccold in Winter.
