Micha V. Jackson, Peter M. Kyne

    Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


    The Red-rumped Swallow Cecropis daurica is an irregular visitor to Australia during its non-breeding season. We present an account of records of this species in the Northern Territory (NT), Australia. Photographs are provided for two previously undocumented records, resulting in a total of seven reported occurrences in the NT. Red-rumped Swallow has been recorded between October and April, often in association with other hirundinid species. Subspecific identification of NT records is not definitive and observers are encouraged to carefully document additional occurrences.
