    Details: At least three were foraging mostly along the irrigation ditch that runs alongside the start of the south loop. All were identified by: swallow body shape and typical acrobatic aerial foraging behavior; dark blue upperparts; and long, forked tail. One briefly flew high and I was able to see the whitish underparts with contrasting dark throat. The white spots on the tail were visible on one when it turned abruptly. They were mostly flying back and forth above the canal, just barely above the water and I could only see them from above. They were often not visible unless I was standing right next to the canal. A few times they flew across the road and foraged over the adjacent pond. Mostly just one or two were visible, but at one point I could see three at once. They were silent the entire time.

  16. swallow sp.

    Number observed: 1

    Details: There was also one swallow that appeared to be brown and white and may have been a Northern Rough-winged Swallow, but my view was too brief to be sure. The light was very poor and even the Barn Swallows were only identifiable to species at very close range.
