Northern Cliff Swallow
Petrochelidon pyrrhonota

These birds visit Southern California from the end of March to the end of August. They build nests on man-made structures, breed and rear their young before heading South for the next part of their migration. Population seems to be declining. Some building owners see them as pests.
