Birding 2-19- 2011 : Mountain Falls, Pahrump: (Nye County)

Today February 19, 2011, I birded at places near my home in Mountain Falls. I took pictures of what I believe are Violet Green Swallows, which I know is unusual. To be sure they are not Tree Swallows, I am bringing my media over to Richard and we are going to look at them together. Today I saw swallows with white underbelly, white flanks, very rapid flight.
