6/28   Sharon    White Hollow Valley (Gavell Cabin Road)
          Most tree swallow broods have fledged from nest boxes in 
the Northwest Corner, as of the last week of June (though some 
linger) and both adults and young birds have begun to flock in open 
country, preparing for migration.  Fritz Mueller and I observed 
(surprisingly to us) some
150+ tree swallows soaring, hunting and perching on powerlines near 
White Hollow Swamp yesterday evening.  It was like a NJ coast scene 
from late August, come early!
