I’m sharing picture of Long Tail Barn Swallow clicked recently in Amer town, near Jaipur
I found this pair sitting close to a ruined haveli at the base of Amer Palace. It’s a huge building which was once a magnificent residential haveli. But now it lays in ruins….There were talks of restoring this haveli, but the court has put restrictions to those plans due to ownership tussle.
Long tail barn swallow is not very easy to spot in Jaipur, you might be able to find one in the open countryside though. Even this pair was kind of difficult to spot as the underbelly of the birds merged well with the surrounding.
