Subject: [slocobirding] swallows at Atascadero Lake

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

A quick check of Atascadero Lake this morning (Tuesday, 1/22) turned up 3 Barn Swallows and 2 Tree Swallows feeding over the lake (both species identifiably photographed). Both species, but particularly the Barn Swallows, would seem to be unusual this far inland in January.

The other bird that was slightly unusual for this site (but not for the county as a whole, or for this date) was an American Pipit working the west shoreline of the lake.

The 2 male Canvasbacks are still present, as is the male Common Merganser (which was joined today by a female). No sign of the Ring-necked Ducks or American White Pelicans that were present throughout the first 10+ days of the New Year.
