Mobbing Swallows in MB

Rosalie Valvo

I was out front talking to a neighbor when I heard a flurry of tweets and saw a flurry of little birds and then a hawk (Red Shouldered?) that flew into a eucalyptus tree.  As soon as the hawk was out of sight, the tweets stopped and the little birds turned out to be swallows that resumed their normal behavior.  Swallows tweeting in flight was a new behavior for me.
