    Bird in Chitwan, Nepal in September

    Hi, anyone know what type of birds these are, I have low certainty in my guess? They were found along a river's edge. Thanks!

    Cave Swallow in flight

    My first, and so far only, sighting of this type of swallow. I was out shooting the tree swallows and barn swallows flying around the lake, and this one different looking swallow was mixed in. I had to take this one to the bird forums for ID, and was told it was a cave swallow.
