    Been seeing a few more swallows in the last week with the weather looking better. Not many though and around the middle of the day there isn't a bird in the sky mostly.

    Bird IDs

    I have to agree. There are dozens of them near me. I counted seven splashing in my tiny water feature. They were actually standing on the floating leaves to bathe.
