It continues to rain here, but we still have managed to get out to Theler Wetlands about once a week. We’ve been seeing Tree Swallows since the first of April, but they’ve now returned in full force, and it’s easy to get a great shot of one resting on the railings
since they’re accustomed to rather steady foot traffic.
The Barn Swallows have also returned, but they’re so busy gathering mud for their nests under the boardwalk that it’s harder to catch a shot of them resting on the rail.
It’s pretty “birdy” at Theler with Redwings
and Song Sparrows
advertising for mates, but I’d continue visiting Theler all summer just for the pleasure of walking the boardwalk with Swallows swooping overhead.
