Tree Swallow

Posted on Jul 6, 2016

How have your Tree Swallow and Eastern Bluebird nest boxes fared this season? It is getting warm out there, and I hope most of the young have successfully fledged. We are already at the point of the year where barbed wire fences and power lines are being filled with swallows of various types as they fledge, disperse and begin to gather before fall migration. Keep an eye out for more uncommon species such as the Bank Swallow or Cliff Swallow sitting among your Trees or Northern Rough-wingeds.
