The Welcome Swallow (Hirundo neoxena) is a small passerine bird in the swallow family.


It is a species native to Australia and nearby islands, but not until recently to New Zealand, which has been colonised in the last half century. It is very similar to the Pacific Swallow with which it is often considered conspecific
