Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Time: 7:10 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: Tree swallow

Scientific Name: Tachycineta bicolor

Comments: Tree swallows compete with bluebirds for nesting boxes. However, if nesting boxes are sited in pairs, a tree swallow will occupy one box and drive away other tree swallows from the other box. That will allow bluebirds to nest there.
