Bird recovered from permafrost

Link to a tweet about a bird found in permafrost. They think the bird if 40,000 years old. I think she did recent research in the Russian Arctic. The bird looks like a barn swallow - any other thoughts?

[edit]: the bird is from Siberia as she mentioned further up in the tweet thread.

Scroll down the twitter feed and there is now a link to another photo - from the comments a large lark species or Redwing are now the favorites but DNA testing is being done.
