The Southern Rough-winged Swallow is a small bird, mostly brown color in the upper parts and grey to white on the underparts; it shows a light orange patch on the throat. They are frequently seen, both flying and perched in lowlands in Costa Rica. They are able to catch insects in mid air, during acrobatic performances. The Northern Rough-winged Swallow is very similar, however that species lacks the orange throat of the Southern.
