I'm wading through some older photos. This bird was perched on a sign near a large pond in the middle of several dozen acres of farm fields. The bird remained for several minutes before taking off. It appears to me to be a swallow. I think there are six species in central SC. Too much white for a male Purple Martin, not enough spots underneath for a female. The pattern of white on the neck isn't right for a Tree or Bank, and the open pond in flat land doesn't suit a Bank's habitat. Not enough orange for a Barn or Cliff I'm left with Northern Rough-Winged, but it looks too dark compared to photos I have of confirmed NRWS. Is that just the angle of the light? April 2016, Lexington County, central SC. Thanks.
