Happy International Migratory Bird Day to all! I will get out for a trip tomorrow, but luckily I have a party at a house on the Chesapeake Bay this afternoon. With any luck, I'll get to enjoy some migrants while I'm at the party. In celebration, here is an image of a barn swallow (Hirundo rustica) I photographed at Bombay Hook NWR last April. While a few barn swallows winter in the southern part of the US range, most migrate to Central and South America.
