White-backed Swallow

White-backed Swallow - Cheramoeca leucosterna


Nambung National Park, Cervantes, Western Australia:  2016:   August. 
Broken Hill, New South Wales:  2016:  September.


An attractive and distinctive Swallow of drier areas.  In Nambung they appeared to be nesting in the formations and usually use small holes in creek banks or unvegetated soil slopes.

Their longish tail stands out in flight, making them easier to differentiate from Martins.
