They're everywhere here in the mountains and tireless darting flyers.
Gordon thank you very much. I definitely agree - violet green! Thanks for the help. And your spottings are amazing.
Nice action shot!
I like the setting, although I can't figure out what it is your bird is sitting on! Love it. I suspect that this is a violet-green swallow. They should be common where you live and they can certainly resemble tree swallows, but there is quite a bit of white on the face and the other markings resemble a violet-green swallow. Here are a couple of my spottings:Tree swallow: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/756...Violet-green: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/627...Notice the white markings on the face of the violet-green and the black mask around the eyes of the tree swallow. What do you think?
