Lone swallow spotted in downtown Holyoke

I found a single Northern rough-winged Swallow perching on a wire over the canal near Dwight and Front streets this morning.

Last year, I first observed swallows in the city on April 15, but it seems likely that they were here several days before that. Looking at last year’s posts, it appears I didn’t manage to do much birding for a full week leading up to that first swallow sighting.

Another thing to look forward to, based on last year’s posts: I logged a sighting of several Cedar Waxwings on April 23. I’m looking forward to finding them in Holyoke again soon.

Below, a few shots from this morning’s observation:
