Cave Swallow

1st State Record. Seen and studied by all four of us for a period of 30 minutes. Swallow had an orange forehead and pale buffy/tan auriculars. Squared off tail with matching buffy/tan rump patch. In flight, the wings were thick and slightly rounded. There was no obvious hood as appears on Cliff Swallow. Breast and flanks were washed in a lighter buff color than the auricular area and blended more with the throat than the sharp cut off of the Cliff Swallow.
