FINALLY got to see these birds sitting on a wire so I could get a photo!

I'm fairly certain they are Barn Swallows... confirmation please ? (Or tell me what I am missing that makes this a different bird :-)

Thanks so much! I've seen them flitting around, but never in a place to get a photo!!

Yes! These are probably the only Swallows that you can ID very quickly when they are flying, even in bad light.
