Barn Swallow Migration Happening Now!

Barn Swallow 


Barn Swallow migration taking place here in NH, had a flock of 25 come through this morning. Each evening we are also seeing small flocks of swallows, mostly Barn and Tree, come through near dusk. And soon it will be Common Nighthawk migration time! We are lucky to live on a river corridor (which is dammed up to form a small lake in front of us) as these birds often follow these corridors as they migrate. Barn Swallows are a declining species so protect them if you have them nesting in your barn.

A Three Vireo Day is a Good Day!

It's a three Vireo morning. Blue-headed, Warbling and Red-eyed Vireos all singing/calling next to our house. Already it's a good day! Look for Vireos in woodlands near you.
