For the last four days our volunteer work here at Collier has been the manual type, raking and hauling off pine needles. Today that changed and our “work” was leading two bird walks, one at eight this morning and a second at ten. I will have to confess it does get a little confusing when our “work” is such a fun thing as birding. These Cliff Swallows that I photographed this morning seem to be in a little confusing situation too. This nest looks to be in need of some repair (they are normally gourd shaped), but they appear to be just hanging out watching the other swallows who were busy feeding their young.
