These are almost grown American barn swallow juveniles. This nest is in a cave which would have been prehistorically the preferred nesting site. Now the birds most often take advantage of human structures for nesting. For more information: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn_Swallow Thanks to Max Medley for the identification.
