Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Time: 4:35 p.m.

Observation Location: field near Gavins Pond

Common Name: Tree swallow

Scientific Name: Tachycineta bicolor

Comments: Tree swallows nest in bluebird nesting boxes. One strategy is to locate two bluebird houses within 10 yards of each other. Tree swallows nesting in one box will drive other tree swallows away from the other box, but allow bluebirds to move in.
