    Details: My first sighting of Sand Martin. I was just trying to get a record shot of a flock of barn swallows sitting on the electric line and found this different looking guy! Zoomed in, clicked many shots and realized that its a martin, but didn't know which one. Later, read the article, 'Identification of Sand Martins in southern India' by Abhinand C, in which he has nicely explained how to separate Sand Martins from Pale Martins. After reading that article, I came to the conclusion that the one I observed was a Sand Martin. For me, the id pointers here are the dark brown color of upper parts, head, breast band, cheek patch etc., which are in strong contrast with the surrounding whites, and also the uniformly pale chin and upper throat. Checked with Abhinand and he confirmed the id.

    Details: My first sighting. About an hour after the martin sighting, I was trying to find the martin again by scanning each and every swallow sitting on cables and fences. But instead of Martin, I found this guy! A lone bird sitting on the fence amidst many barn swallows.
