Barn Swallows


These birds always pass by my window making weird but nice sounds. They are swift fliers and it's a challenge taking their photos while in flight. I was lucky enough to spot them perched on a tree by Lake Momella.

Thanks, Emma, for the ID.
And thanks, Livan, for the clarification. I'll make some revision on this posting.

Last three pictures are: Lesser Striped Swallow (Hirundo abyssinica syn. Cecropis abyssinica)
The first 2 groups on the branch do look as (rustica) European or Barn swallows as Emma said.
