Hey all, with the recent reports of CAVE SWALLOWs, we should all be on high alert for any Swallow sp. coming through at this time. With that being said, birds should still be thoroughly observed to nail down an ID and should not be assumed as CASW. I write this because I was nearly fooled myself this morning when a group of 5 Swallows were observed feeding around the upland at Stratford Point. This flock consisted of 3 Tree Swallows and 2 Barn Swallows and 0 Cave Swallows. Also, many Loons are passing by with the majority being vocal Red-throateds. There was a single Pine Siskin at the feeders as well.
