Greater-striped Swallows

The Greater-striped Swallow is a locally common breeding intra-African migrant, present July/ August until May. 

This past weekend was the first time (this year) that I've managed to capture these pretty birds.

The Greater-striped Swallow is larger in size than the Lesser-striped Swallow (not found in my part of South Africa) and more finely striped below than the Lesser-Striped Swallow

  2. Hello, Jo! Pretty shots of your Swallow. They are sweet birds, I love all the swallows. It seems there are so many varieties of swallows in the world. Enjoy your day and week ahead!
