Northern Rough Winged Swallow?

Recommended Posts



Currently in central Florida, swallows are passing through in great numbers and swallows are everywhere. Mostly barns, but the occasional martin, cliff, or bank passes through.


However, I saw a flock of these swallows extremely high in the sky (I was scoping some raptors and noticed them mixed with the kettle).

They appear to be northern rough winged swallows, due to the paler throat, browner back, and more squared tail than a barn swallow. Thoughts?
