We had one last year on the Yakima CBC right about the time they were being
reported on the west side.

Subject: [Tweeters] Big Barn Theory
Like others on tweeters, I find the sporadic appearance of Barn Swallows in
our area in winter really interesting. I have noted in the past few winters,
that when one tweeter sees Barn Swallows this time of year, many other
tweeters also do, in many other sites in our region. Last year I saw a Barn
Swallow in Port Townsend - December, I think - and at the same time other
tweeters were also seeing them in various spots around our region. Just like
what's happening now.
My theory is that there is a really Big Barn out there somewhere, and
somebody (God? Mother Nature?) occasionally forgets to close the Barn
doors, and the swallows get out when they're not supposed to. Thats my
theory, and I'm sticking to it, until some more intelligent tweeter comes
forth with some real facts!
