Fairy Martin

Fairy Martin - Hirundo ariel


Western Treatment Plant, Werribee:  2013:  September.


Distinguished from Tree Martins by the rufous head and whiter rump.   They build a bottled-shaped nest of mud, often attached to the under side of a bridge or culvert, and are therefore referred to as "Bottle Swallows" by some people.
