Barn Swallow (Female)

Hirundo rustica

Description:

The female Barn Swallow has a slender body with long wings and tail. While lacking in the blue head that the male has, the female shares the common orange tinged feathers on the belly.

Habitat:

Meadows and grassy fields. Anywhere where tall grass can be found. The nests can be easily found ender eaves, inside sheds, bridges and other structures.

Notes:

I have seen this bird in the hydro-field near my house often. It has a forked tail and orange belly feathers. The head is a lighter shade of grey than the body, while the body is a darker grey including the wings. When in flight, there is a notable inverted v shape in the tail feathers. (Thank you Ashley T. for the identification)

You misspelled under. It is under, not ender.
