Barn Swallow

Hirundo rustica


Blue-black upper feathers, reddish-brown or orange brown forehead, chin and throat. Light cream or white underside. Forked tail.


Old field,fences bordering lagoon.


A few barn swallows are always mixed in with flocks of tree swallows. Then spotting and observation is easier because the reddish or orange coloring stands out more then blue black.
