The White-winged Swallow is one bird that definitely doesn't disappoint.
When you are taking a boat trip on the Kabalebo river you most likely will see these residents of the river: White-winged Swallows (Tachycineta albiventer). They are easily recognizable by the white patch on their wings. With a length of 14 cm they are considered also as small and agile birds.
On the river you can spot them resting on branches or logs hanging over the river and also on rocks.
I spotted this White-winged Swallow alone on the River cabin beach, but they also like to have some company, either with a partner or in a small group.
When passing by in a boat or kayak you will see them flying gracefully low over the water. Most likely they are catching flying insects.
White-winged Swallows are common birds of the river, one that you will spot on a daily basis.
