Southern Rough-winged Swallow

Southern Rough-winged Swallow

Stelgidopteryx ruficolis

We rarely see this swallow at the reserve.  This example was seen in November and is probably a juvenile.  It has probably come from Missiones where the soil is red, hence the pinkish breast.  It tends to favour wetlands.

It measures 13 cm, has brown upperparts and a cinnamon throat.  The underparts are mostly whitish
