[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor)

Here is a picture of a Tree Swallow that I managed to photograph in the Fisherman's Wharf in Moterey, California.


Tree Swallows nest in natural or artificial cavities near water and are often found in large flocks. They readily use nest boxes, including those built for bluebirds. Declines in cavity-builder populations are resulting in fewer natural nesting sites for Tree Swallows, although the swallow population remains healthy.
