This bird family comprises swallows and martins. Several genera exhibit hybridization, but only the intergeneric hybrid between Cave Swallow (Petrochelidon fulva) and Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) has been studied in greater detail (Martin, 1980; Martin, 1982; Martin & Selander, 1975). Although there are some early reports of swallow hybrids (Mearns, 1902; Trotter, 1878). Recently, Dunning et al. (2014) described a hybrid between House Martin (Delichon urbicum) and Sand Martin (Riparia riparia), caught in Gibraltar.
