Cave Swallow

Cave Swallow
The cave swallow (Petrochelidon fulva) is a small, stocky songbird that builds its nest in the so-called twilight zone of caves—right at the entrance, where the light levels are low. The species still lives on some islands in the Bahamas, but not on the island where these bones turned up.
