Pacific Swallow

Hirundo tahitica


It is medium in size, red plumage on forehead and from chin to chest, dark blue wings and mantle, and white belly. It has a close relative that looks very similar, that is Hirundo rustica.


Easily found in urban ecosystem. These were having a nest on the corner of my campus dormitory corridor wall.
