Meet the Swallow Family

May 18Barn Swallows

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Some of the baby swallows are now out exploring their new world. Join docent Roy Sasai to view the crèches (assembly of colony young) as they await their meal delivery. Learn about their adventures exploring their new world as they learn how to fly and catch their meals in preparation for their monumental 5,000 mile journey to a jungle which they have never seen before. We will hike to spots on the refuge to view their unusual gathering spots and discuss the effects of sea level rise on their future. Bring binoculars and camera. The hike is approximately 2 miles total with medium hills. Reservations are not required.
