Had my First of the Year Tree Swallows Yesterday But they where to high to say they're going to stay the 14 Violet-greens Swallows I have are all Resident I saw them today even in this Cool, Showery Weather. They were looking for the Opening in the Apts and my Nest Box like I have said a few days ago but I had 8 those increased by 5 more yesterday Now waiting on the rest of the Trees then soon Barns will also be around with Roughies My area is not to good for Cliffs I live in a nicely treed Neighborhood With a Riparian Pond Nearby Lake Charlton Lake 0.3 Miles away and Zak's Lake 0.7 Miles away and Will's Lake Behind Zak's Lake also have a Gravel Pit on the other side othe the apts with Ponds with Banks for the Roughies I do live near a Bridge But it is not high enough for Cliffs. It is 14 feet. I also Can't wait for the Vaux's Swifts To arrive I have Hollow Trees with Cavities in the woods Hoping I get Some Purple Martins I Had them where I used to
live by Mountain Highway up in Spanaway by Walmart they breed somewhere near by I do have reports of nest at Mcchord Which I live Near by So Lets see if I have some Good Luck Hopefully all of you Birders Get your Swallows, Martins, Swifts Soon.
