This morning, 1/22/20, I birded Ed Levin CP. Near Sandy Wool Lake, small flocks of swallows would pass through over the lake or the fields to the west. My best count was 13 birds. Most were hard to identify against the gray sky. Over a period of an hour I had good looks at about two VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS and four BARN SWALLOWS. I suspect these are wintering birds. Based on prior records, the first influx of spring Violet-greens are the last two weeks of February. Barns tend to show up at the start of March. A flock of about four PINE SISKINS was picking seeds out of hanging liquidamber seed balls near the lake.
