Tree Swallow
Lucky shot at Huntington Beach State Park, SC. These guys are nesting under wooden observation decks. This is where the barn swallows usually build their mud nests. Tree swallow hollow out a dead tree to nest. At least that's what Ive seen in the past. Barnies usually have some brown on them and not the white breasts you see here that are characteristic of Tree swallows. Sorry for the confusion. There are literally a hundred of them flying around so there could be both. I luckily have a few more good shots!
