Mixed in with a large group of swallows were two square tailed swallows with a very buffy upper rump. The back was a dark blue gray color. The undersides were white with the throat appearing almost the same color as the breast on one bird(in other words, no dark throat coloring like a cliff swallow). The bright morning light tended to wash out the colors, so I could not be certain of the exact color of the throat, except that it was very pale, not dark). While I could not see the forehead color due to the bright sunlight, it was darker than the throat, making it look overall like a dark capped bird. The second buff rumped swallow view was too brief to see the throat.

This Petrochelidon swallow was briefly seen crossing my field of view while watching the likely Cave Swallow. Only the buff rump was seen. It seems likely it was also a Cave Swallow, but cannot be proven.
