Tree swallow? And?

Recommended Posts

Southern Nevada over the wash, dozens of rough-winged swallows, a very few barn swallows, and not sure about these. Thanks!

#1 looks good for a tree swallow.

#2 looks like a Violet Green Swallow.(?)

#3 possible Cliff Swallow?

Agree with Tree Swallow and Violet-green Swallow for 1 and 2, respectively. Note how the dark comes down around the whole eye and face on the Tree Swallow, Violet-greens have more white in the face. And then the white wrapping around the side of the Violet-green Swallow's rump in the second photo.

3rd I'm not sure, throat looks pretty pale for Cliff Swallow but that could be the lighting.

could three possibly just be a rough-winged? asking because I don't know my swallows very well.
