Mike Kolakowski saw this Northern Rough-winged Swallow in Cliffwood Beach, New Jersey.
Northern Rough-winged Swallows (Stelgidopteryx serripennis)
can be seen across the United States, southern Canada, and parts of Mexico. They like to nest under bridges, in culverts, and along river banks. Mike took this picture with a Canon 20D and a 100-400mm zoom lens.View photos of other swallows:
