Violet-Green Swallow

Tachycineta thalassina

The Violet-Green Swallow breeds in western North America from Alaska to Mexico. They spend winters in Central and northern South America. They nest in cavities in a tree or rock crevice, sometimes forming small colonies. I found a pair nesting in a dirt bank in the Yukon.
