Seen well among the large concentration of swallows, both perched for a short time on a wire and in the air. A petrochelidon swallow with rufousy rump, forehead and pale throat (as opposed to the dark throat I might expect for an adult Cliff Swallow). Given the apparent expansion of the colonies in Dona Ana county (namely those at Leasburg Dam), I wouldn't be surprised if this species becomes more frequent in southern Sierra. There may have been a second bird, but the presence of immature Cliff Swallows complicated the matter.
