I stopped by the Wardensville Wastewater Ponds and the adjacent boat launch this afternoon, and was surprised to find a Cliff Swallow (WV lifer) perched on a power line. After looking around a little, I found more down by the river and discovered a couple of active nests on the rt. 259 bridge. I know we didn't find any Cliff Swallows at Foray last year, and there are only a few eBird records of nesting Cliff Swallows in Hardy County. I took several photos and have attached them to the eBird checklist below.
