Common swallow in tropical lowlands with a glossy blue-green back. Large white wing patches are easily visible in flight and on perched birds. Forked tail and gleaming white rump are also obvious in flight. Typically forages low over the water. Pairs or groups frequently perch on snags in rivers and lakes.
