Oh forgot the Swallow.......I only had a quick look at it as I was
leaving as it flew by (since it surprised me). I was a little stunned
to see a large Swallow flying down the River. But I was 90% positive
it was a Cave Swallow (I gave it 10% for the surprise factor). It flew
west down the River towards Guilford Harbor.
