- Last week I briefly saw a small group of swallows, maybe 8 or so, high
overhead - too high for ID. Yesterday, two Violet-Green Swallows flew
around us for a few minutes; hopefully they will return to nest again in
the old redwood snag. Haven't seen the Barn Swallows at the Albion PO yet.
Today the first Acorn Woodpecker showed up at my suet feeder.
Allen's Hummingbirds have been showing up in large numbers recently; two
days ago there were probably twenty at my house. Now the males have
staked out territory and are making display flights, and the numbers are
down a bit.
Ospreys are back in force - I saw three while driving up to Fort Bragg
