  7. Hi All! This was in Santa Rosa Beach FL (Panhandle) on May 2nd, 2014. I believe I confirmed this on Whatbird back then but can't find the post... I finally found my picture and wanted to get your thoughts as its a rarity for the area. Thanks!

  12. Tree Swallow it is! Dark above and clean white underparts.
  13. I think royal as well after doing some more reading - beak seems a bit too orange - probably would be more black on Wing tips and maybe a bit too early for this area?
