Swallows "staging" up already.

Postby Russ Emmons » Thu Jul 21, 2016 7:57 pm

The few times we've got out in recent days we've noted Swallows (mostly Barn & Tree of course) are already staging up by the dozens & even hundreds at this end of the county!

Russ, I ran in to a large group (100+) of grackles in the woods in Tuscola Co.
last weekend. Thinking they were getting ready for the trip South ??

No swallows even stopped by here for longer than a day or so this Spring.

As to Grackles..... Dale, you must have seen the 100 that I "hosted" here for the last few months! I'm finally down to just a couple. It was so bad, I had to let a couple of feeders go empty.... including the suet basket...so now the Pileateds haven't even been around. :(
