[Tweeters] Big Barn Theory

Like others on tweeters, I find the sporadic appearance of Barn Swallows in our area in winter really interesting. I have noted in the past few winters, that when one tweeter sees Barn Swallows this time of year, many other tweeters also do, in many other sites in our region. Last year I saw a Barn Swallow in Port Townsend - December, I think - and at the same time other tweeters were also seeing them in various spots around our region. Just like what's happening now.
My theory is that there is a really Big Barn out there somewhere, and somebody (God? Mother Nature?) occasionally forgets to close the Barn doors, and the swallows get out when they're not supposed to. Thats my theory, and I'm sticking to it, until some more intelligent tweeter comes forth with some real facts!
