Observation details

Tiny Chaetura swift mixed in with swallows just north of Tower, doing a circuit feeding above the creek. Shape and stiff wing beats immediately caught my eye. Slightly paler throat and rump, plus very short tail eliminated similar but much less likely Chimney Swift. Also size was noticeably smaller than swallows it associated with. If it were a Chimney I would expect the size to be more comparable.
