West Coast Creature Feature-The Beautiful Barn Swallow

While not strictly a "west coast" animal, as they are found all over the world, the barn swallow is a beautiful sight here on the West Coast. Although common, its numbers have declined in Washington state and is "blue-listed" (special concern) in British Columbia. These wonderful birds help farmers and the wider population by controlling insects, so thank a barn swallow today!

Fly high and have a lovely day today!
