Northern Rough-winged Swallow range

The Northern Rough-winged Swallow has its range across the southern regions of Canada down through the US and into Mexico. It is more likely to be seen on the Caribbean islands during the winter months. This swallow may be confused with the Bank Swallow as both have drab brownish-grey plumage. The Bank Swallow has a breast band with the dark center leading into its belly. While the Northern Rough-winged Swallow only has the breast band.
