Today I floated about 4 hours of Armuchee Creek north of Rome. No
spectacular finds. I checked out four large bridges, no cliff swallows
but many barns.
What's the deal on North GA. bank swallows? Have they ever been found
nesting in GA? I saw a pair of brown swallows, very similar to
rough-wings, flying over a section of very rural creek today. They
repeated flew toward a particular steep bank and when I arrived there,
there was a small hole in the bank, towards the top, smaller than a
kingfisher's. I did not have a book for ID, and was leading a group of
school kids and could not slow down. It was very interesting. If it
sounds particularly intriguing to anyone I may go back and check it out.
--About 5-6 Kingfisher holes
--many, many white-eyed vireos
--heard one Kentucky War.
--many wood ducks
