Barn swallow and tree swallows at the Wetlands!

Sarah, Just thought you would like to know that Spring is in full swing at the Tollgate Wetlands near Groesbeck Golf Course.

I took this picture last night and really appreciated the beauty of these birds. I have not seen them at the wetlands before. It was really fun watching them swoop for insects just above the water. Just beautiful!

Thanks!
Laura M
