Hello all - to augment Harry Fuller's recent post, I'd like to share my findings for the day.
A brief stop at Force Lake proved to be rather bountiful in the swallow department. After scanning through the swarm of TREE SWALLOWS, I surprisingly came across an early CLIFF SWALLOW. A few moments later a quick, slender, brownish swallow caught my eye, which turned out to be a NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW. Joining the party a bit later were a dozen or so VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS.
The experience proved to hold some pleasant surprises and was a much needed intermission during today's steady deluge.
