Bird #296 — Violet-green Swallow

tachycineta (from tachys, swift, and kinetos, to move) thalassina (sea-green)

Monday, April 2, 1984 — 10:00 am

Coronado National Forest, Arizona — Sabino Canyon Recreation Area

I had a hard time seeing all the field marks on these Violet-green Swallows because I was at the bottom of the canyon, and they were flying up near the rim.  But I had time.  I watched them circling over the canyon until I was satisfied.
