[Hirundo rustica Linnaeus (barn swallow), Tachycineta bicolor (Vieillot) (tree swallow) and possibly also T. thalassina (Swainson) (violet-green swallow)] • Swallows are expert fliers that feed on the wing. Although six species of swallows occur within the territory, speakers commonly recognize two types: those with a red breast and black back (barn swallow) and those with a white breast (tree swallow and possibly also violet-green swallow).
