I know that Jay McGowan posted a sighting of Northern Rough-winged Swallow from 
Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge on 26 March, but I thought I would mention 
that there were two Northern Rough-winged Swallows actively calling and flying 
around above the parking lot behind Gateway Center at the base of East State 
Street in Ithaca, this evening. This is a traditional location for this species 
to breed. They nest in the drainage pipes which empty from the concrete 
retaining wall of the parking lot into Six Mile Creek. It was nice to hear 
their quick raspy vocalizations again this spring.

Good birding!!
