New bird in backyard

by Richard
(Salinas, California)

He is about the size of a sparrow, almost the same shape but more stream lined with a longer tail he is almost like a swallow, but his head and beak and breast and tail and the tops of his wings are a charcaol black while his stomach is sort of a grayish white.
At first I thought he was going to try to bathe in my pond as many birds do, but he was actually trying to catch the mosquito fish,,, which I haven't seen any birds do,,, but wished they had.
