Identification. Body small with a large head and a medium-long squared tail, dark sooty gray overall with a white belly.

Remarks. On Aug. 30, 2019. We recorded a cup-shaped nest built with mud, feathers and hair under a concrete bridge. We found three eggs (20.20 mm × 15.41 mm). In ESNR the records of this species are unusual, while for PJDNR it is recorded constantly.
