- Barn Swallow – lone bird coursing over baseball and softball fields
- 2 Swallow spp. – yesterday, two birds flew past the railroad bridge, but I had no binoculars and the lighting wasn’t great.
- Brown Thrasher – reported by Ben Ewen-Campen over by the Barn.
Brown Thrasher would be a new campus species for me, so it’s great that they’re still around.
The famous swallows of Capistrano are usually said to arrive on St. Joseph’s Day, March the 19th. It’s interesting that it’s taken nearly a month for them to arrive at this latitude.
