Re: H Farm Swallows
Hi All,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Just a quick correction on the Bank Swallows.
There are a few regular spots in the Bay Area:
Nesting colony on the cliffs of Fort Funston. These birds often go to Lake Merced to forage
Nesting colony at Ano Nuevo
Dependable concentrations at Bethel Island starting about late June and peaking in mid-August, presumably staging migrants (potentially breeders from farther north in the valley along the shores of the Sacramento/Feather River?)
Additionally, the species disperses throughout the region and locally stages at certain spots starting in Late June, especially in the Central Valley portions of the “Bay Area”.
Just a few notes in case anyone wants to see Bank Swallows in coming months.
