ID 0F4A0623.jpg I have been puzzling over these various species for some time now. I take the photographs at a great height as the radio tower on which they perch is tall, a variety of species (martins, swallows and swifts) visit The tower off and on. The photographs I'm posting today are those that might be the Barn swallow. The Red-rumped swallow, the Dusky Craig-martin, and Little swift are residents. Eurasian Crag-Martin and the Barn swallow are winter visitors.
Location Mount Abu Raj India.

White-breasted woodswallow? Looks to have a thick bill, dark area around the eye and contrast between the tail feathers and the undertail coverts in the first image?

Daniel hi,
Thanks and appreciated for your observation. I'm not too sure if the wood swallows visite this part of Rajasthan. no previous record have mentioned them.
Cheers
