Swallows congregate for mutual defense and sometimes foraging . Cliff swallows have a white patch above the eyes that reminds me of a visor.

The bridge, that most local cliff swallows had built nests on , has been scraped clean of nests before the swallows had returned for the next breeding cycle . A seismic retrofit was performed so it will be interesting to see if any nests are reestablished .
