  8. swallow sp.

    Number observed: 1

    Details: Square-tailed swallow seen four times flying over hedgerow area just as rain started; unfortunately, I never got a dorsal look but did see the bird on a close low flyover with binoculars, which left no doubt that it did not have completely white underparts. Clearly saw what appeared to be a duskiness in the throat area. I initially thought NRWS, but the flight did not seem like that species as it was more typically "swallow-like" The throat duskiness also did not appear to be solid like on a CLSW. I believe the bird was a Cave Swallow, but without a definitive look, I can't absolutely rule out the two species mentioned above.
