Last September there was an extremely severe week, and a lot of Swallows, Martins died in Hungary. My brother collected 2 dead juvenile House Martins for me. I put them in the deep freezer. My wife decided to clean it today, and there was no excuse to preserve the dead birds. So I made a quick sketchpage of them, concentrating mainly to the juvenile characters. Please note the moulted uppertail coverts (which are bluish, compared to the brownish juvenile ones):
