Cliff Swallow Nests

Petrochelidon pyrrhonota

Habitat:

Bridge in urban area

Notes:

These amazing nests were found underneath the Tempe Town Lake Bridge. They were not occupied when I observed them because the Cliff Swallows have not returned from their Wintering grounds.

Thanks Hema. As for college, I have been taking classes at my community college towards an Asscoiates in Science degree. I plan on getting a Bachelor's in Wildlife Management from Oregon State afterwards. I'd like to work for the AZ Department of Game and Fish.

I'm also a little busy. Right now, I'm finishing my senior year in high school, taking a college class, and learning how to drive. Keeps me occupied!

Thanks Hema, I did take a look under the bridge. I didn't know that Phoebes would nest under those! Seems like a safe place. How are you doing?
