Unlike the barn swallow, the chestnut throat of the angola swallow extends onto the chest. It occurs mainly to the west of the Rift Valley (see map). The top and bottom photos (Rubondo island) are courtesy of Amos Pampy Hardecker. The next three photos were taken at Lukuba, courtesy of Valéry Schollaert; the 4th row flight photo was taken in the Serengeti; the 5th row, at Musoma, courtesy of Per Holmen.
