Stelgidopteyx serripennis - Fairly common, especially near water. Brown back and brown throat and breast separate it from all but the much larger martins, which show a purplish tinge on the back and head. Nest, usually single, are in burrows in banks or in small drainpipes at highway bridges. Call is like Bank Swallow, a low unmusical buzz.
