Hi Craig & All, A few years back we had a Barn Swallow flying around just as volunteers were coming back in for the countdown at the Thomas Condon Visitor Center in the John Day Fossil Bed National Monument, for the Antone CBC. Recorded for the count.
Definitely a good CBC sighting but not unprecedented. Climate change is happening!

While birding at the Crooked River Wetlands, Marilyn and I observed a BARN SWALLOW flying along the Crooked River. I am not aware of any other swallow records in Central Oregon during either December or January.
