The Tree Swallows have returned to Falmouth! Tree swallows are superb fliers, and very skilled at aerial pursuit and the capture of flying insects. Spring migrants arrive in late March and early April. These swallows are among the most widely distributed nesting birds in the state. They prefer wooded habitat near water, especially flooded swamps. The tree swallow has iridescent dark blue upperparts and white underparts. This tree swallow was seen in a swampy area just off of Rt. 28A in West Falmouth. Go to www.falmouthbirds for more info!
