Visitors to patio in Phoenix, AZ
(Phoenix, AZ, USA)
This pair have been staying overnight at our covered patio for a couple of days now. They don't seem bothered by human presence.
Slightly larger than a sparrow, not as big as a thrush. As I'm a recent resident from the UK, I'm still unfamiliar with even the most common American birds.
Any help, greatly appreciated.Comment
Welcome Terry to North American birds. Those are swallows - looks like Barn Swallows, although Cave Swallows are also found in Arizona. Hopefully our readers can confirm.
You may soon discover a mud cradle. Their flight seems the very poetry of motion.
