Riparia (s) (noun), Riparias (pl)
A species of birds that are closely associated with rivers: Riparias are swallow-like birds with dark brown and white plumage that excavate nest holes in sandy banks and cliffs near water.

The Riparias nest in tunnels usually produced by the birds themselves in a natural sand bank or earth mound along streams or rivers.

Riparias lay white eggs, which are incubated by both parents, in a nest of straw, grass and feathers in a chamber at the end of the burrow.
