Labrador Tea plants in bloom.
Tree Swallows & Tea Plants
“I’m remembering the delight of our recent Monday morning visit to Carpenter Lake. At Cindi’s urging, I took photos of a couple of notable things we were discussing. We were taken by the swallows’ activities, which are usually noted to nest in structures. Here, it appeared they had created a multi-story condominium in a tree snag near the lake. I can verify that I watched one go in and come out of a tree hole.”

“While we most typically see violet-green and barn swallows along the Carpenter Lake Trail, the swallows pictured show the features of tree swallows - the eye has no white above it and there do not seem to be white “saddles” wrapping around from the belly to the upper side.”
