And for Mother's Day – yet another bird!



The 33rd bird on our Maple Leaf Reservoir Park bird list showed up on Mother’s Day.

It’s a Barn Swallow, and there were three of them catching bugs at the upper park Sunday afternoon.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology:

Glistening cobalt blue above and tawny below, Barn Swallows dart gracefully over fields, barnyards, and open water in search of flying insect prey. Look for the long, deeply forked tail that streams out behind this agile flyer and sets it apart from all other North American swallows.
