    Comments: *rare. Flock flying over wetlands. Typical Cypseloides swifts, with bulbous heads, long and pointed wings and relatively long, squared tails. Flight style distinctive, with deep wing beats and little gliding. Way smaller than nearby White-collared Swifts, but larger and bulkier than Lesser Swallowtail Swift. At field, these birds looked all-dark. Photos show frosty white markings on forehead and above eye, plus small but evident white chin spot. Some birds with scaly lower underparts.

  9. Number observed: 1

    Comments: *rare. With flock of White-chinned Swifts. Compared to White-chinned Swifts, this bird was the same size but slimmer, with quicker wing beats (looking closer to Chaetura, but not as fluttery) and evident white markings both in front and behind the eye at the field (in contrast, White-chinned looked all-dark in the field). This was the first Cypseloides ID at the field, so we thought that all the birds were this species until we checked the photos. Notice in this photo lack of white chin, conspicuous white spot in forehead and less-conspicuous white spot behind eye (in this photo at least... very evident in the field).
