I'm continuing an inventory of nesting colonies of Bank Swallows in westernWashington again this year.  I'm interested in obtaining breeding colonyrecords in this half of the state from birders who haven't already posted theirobservations on eBird.  I'd like to receive information on the locationsof colonies (as exact as possible so that the sites can be visited), as well asdates visited and numbers of burrows counted for 2022 or any past years. Data from past years will help inform how long specific sites have beenoccupied.  So far, nearly all known colonies are located in thecounties flanking the western Cascades, thus I'm especially interested inhearing about sites present in Pacific, Wahkiakum, Grays Harbor, Mason, Kitsap,Jefferson, Clallam, Island, and San Juan counties.  Clark County is another location where colonies are underrepresented.  Please contact me withyour information at wilesharkey at yahoo.com .  Thanks for your help.
