Solid brown Swallow?
This bird was found in a large grassy field in Southeast Michigan. The closest major city is Toledo OH. She is injured and was brought into my veterinary clinic for care. Would love to know what she (he?) is, especially so I can offer an appropriate diet. She is evenly brown all over, except for some lighter scalloping on the wing feathers. Underside is the same shade of brown. Darker spot in front of her eye.
I am thinking some sort of swallow?
It certainly looks like a swallow. A baby swallow consumes up to 700 flies a day!
They also like worms and grubs.
