Thats what I think it is, so if someone could confirm the ID I would really appreciate it. There not the best quality, I did not realize I shot them handheld at 1/125( oops ). I will have to go back to this spot and take some better shots. Thanks for looking .

Not bad at all Chris. I don't know what type of bird it is, but it is captured well. I love the profile shot and the OOF backgrounds makes him shine. Nice capture...

These are nice shots, Chris. Especially handheld at 1/125. I particularly liked image #1.
When I looked up Northern Rough-winged Swallow in my "Stokes Field Guide to Birds" I see a photo of a bird that looks very much like your capture. So I'd say you made the correct ID.

Good shots. You must have a steady hand to take these handheld at 1/125. :-)

Really great shots, at 1/125 shutter speed?! What lens did you use? #1 is especially sharp. I'd be thrilled with these.

Two very nice shots here Chris. Great exposure and color, BG and detail in both. I think I like the first one more for the progile of the bird...super composition and I would be tempted to remove the lone oof branch behind the bird. Not sure how hard that would be but a combimation of the patch and cloning tools in PS would probably be the way to go. Excellent in any case!
