Cliff Swallow added!

Today I took a swing around my "big backyard" and turned up some swallow species.  First, I saw a Tree Swallow which was a nice sighting but not a life or year bird.  Then a Barn Swallow which was the same (not life or year bird but nice bird).  THEN..I spotted what I thought to be another Tree Swallow flying.  But now, watching the bird for 30 seconds-1 minute, no way, it's reddish/orange colored throat and short, square tail made this bird an easy call to Cliff Swallow.  Lifer for me and year bird #281!

Until later,
