Cave Swallows seen in Wisconsin

There is very exciting birding news coming out of Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Yesterday, about 15 to 20 probable CAVE SWALLOWS were seen at the South Metro Sewage Plant/Pier. If accepted by the WSO Records Committee, these birds would be new to the state list, as well as one of only a few mid-continent records for the species. No telling whether these birds will stick around, but apparently there are plenty of insects above the treatment tanks for the swallows to eat. If the birds are still present by Thursday, I might have to take a look for myself!

You can follow the unfolding drama on the Wisconsin Birding Network.
