    I believe that you have a female Brown-headed Cowbird. Males are obvious but not so with the ladies.

    Thanks for the information. I went over and got there at 11:00 and almost immediately spotted 4 swallows feeding over the creek. I had to watch for a while to get good enough views to be sure these...

    That's my guess.
    Thanks, Chuck
