[Tweeters] Swallows at Union Bay Fill today

Responding to Barry Brugman's comment on Edmond's' swallows, I've had a
single swallow at the Fill (SW corner) since yesterday.  My eyes have
not been able to convince me re juv. Barn vs Tree.  I'm currently
leaning toward Tree but younger retinas may pick up more detail.

Also today was a juv eagle chasing a peregrine, followed by a raven
(heard the call) chasing an eagle, and then...crow chasing the raven
across UW campus.  This was the first raven I've personally seen at the
Fill.

Lastly, a hermit thrush dropped by to pose next to the loop trail.

Best of all, the clouds parted for a moment of sun (really, I saw it
myself!).
