A typical small martin with brown upperparts, pale underparts, and a diffuse gray-brown breast band. Resident and extremely localized, restricted to the Congo River and a handful of its tributaries, breeding colonially in sandbanks. Despite being fairly common, the species’ vocalizations are unknown. Sand Martin is larger than Congo Martin and has a bolder breast band delineating a white throat; Brown-throated Martin has a dark throat.
