IDentificAtion. This species was seen flying with indi- viduals of Petrochelidon pyrrhonota (Vieillot, 1817) ; we observed many individuals foraging in the EET and buffer zone. We identified this species by its long, deeply forked tail and steely blue upper, with chestnut forehead and chestnut to buff throat ( Ridgely and Tudor 2009).
