GREATER STRIPED SWALLOW IN FLIGHT, MARIEVALE BIRD SANCTUARY, JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

   We can ID this swallow as a Greater Striped Swallow by its relatively short (compared to some other swallows) forked tail, pale underparts (stripes are not noticeable as they would be on a Lesser Striped Swallow) and two tone underwing pattern (pale and dark).
   The Greater Striped Swallow is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 342.
