Subject: Tree swallows at Wetlands?

Yesterday, Sunday the 5th, at Wetlands three of us spent a good deal of time watching a sizeable group of birds swirling in the air over the middle of the swollen James River, working slowly up stream. They had a brilliant iridescent blue-green back which really was strikingly beautiful in the sun, and black and white. With a little snooping on the web, we can only propose that they were tree swallows. Does this seem remotely plausible? Any other ideas? Did anyone else report them?
Thanks!  Marion
