Highlights from birding the east side this morning (5/3):

Indian Lake (old Collinsville Rd. golf course) was a good place for
swallows, where 6 species were represented in a mixed flock of dozens:

Purple Martin
N. Rough-winged Swallow
Bank Swallow
Barn Swallow
Cliff Swallow
Tree Swallow

The Purple Martins were very busy gathering nesting materials.

Horseshoe Lake short list:

Caspian Tern -- 1 on a sand bar in a pool on the south side of the field
across from the borrow pits
American Bittern -- 1 preening itself on the edge of the large pond near
the borrow pits
Bell's Vireo -- singing in the bushes along the road that runs by the
pits to Bend Rd.
