Wire Tailed Swallows

I am pretty sure most of us have seen swallow’s flying about, whether we identify the species or not. They are always seen as pretty swift fliers in the air. Because they are tiny and fly fast at a distance they always appear black unless ofcourse you can manage some day to spot it from very nearby like I finally had a chance to do! πŸ˜€

These fella’s were flying at crazy speeds over the water in Vadhvana Wetlands acrobatically grabbing insects in their flight. This bird is an insectivore and mostly catches flies when in flight!! Finally this Wire Tailed Swallow rested for a few seconds on a window and I could get these snaps! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
