Oct. 7, 1977 - First state record
(Adult female); Specimen (NWMSU DAE 2986); Maryville, Nodaway Co.; David Easterla; 22nd Annual MBRC Report, 2009-1, and NAB: Vol. 62, Number 2, 200-203. After a lapse of nearly three decades, the reporter relocated this specimen and sent photographs of it to David Sibley for confirmation of the identification. Curiously, it proved to be of the nominate Caribbean subspecies fulva, which occurs in Florida. Recent annual fall incursions of Cave Swallows across the Midwest and along the Atlantic coast have been documented as the Texas and mainland subspecies pallida.
