The Cliff Swallow is quite similar to the southern Cave Swallow. It is usually seen in colonies and these birds build their enclosed mud nests under ledges, such as overpasses, bridges and eaves. They most often make use of existing man-made structures. These are the most northerly ranging swallows seen in North America. These swallows have been reported seen in Cuba.
