I saw 35 Barn Swallows on an 18' boat in West Neck Creek, Shelter Island
while trolling for Snapper Blues. I saw many more on other boats . I have
been trolling around boats for ten years here, never seen this many Barn
Swallow on boats.
Barn swallows here nest under docks and many times the high tide wipes them
out, there is at least a hundred docks from the beginning to the end of
West Neck Creek. Maybe the start of migration south?
