|Tree Swallows at home|
It was easy to confuse with the Bluebird, since the Tree Swallow shares its taste in housing and location.
Apparently the Tree Swallow is "widespread and common" according to the Audubon's online Bird guide.
Maybe, but I've never seen them close enough to identify them. It's breeding season, and this pair sent clear signals they didn't want me getting closer than 20 feet.
|On the Lookout|
Tree Swallows are migratory birds. For them this part of Wisconsin is the south end of the summer stomping, er, soaring grounds.
They eat mostly flying insects, so just think how many annoying bugs there would be without them!
Added to my list of flying creatures: the Black Throated Blue Warbler, the Great Horned Owl, a Screech Owl, and now the Tree Swallow.
I can't identify a lot of birds, so adding four to my internal hard drive is fun.
I wonder what bird might be next?
