Dear Paul,

If the forehead patch is buffy, it is still a Cliff Swallow. The forehead patch on Cave Swallows is dark. I have seen this before on Cliff Swallows. It may be a yearling who is not quite at full adult plumage, but if it is a pale color you can be pretty sure it is a Cliff Swallow. Still a good Big Gulp!
