    There are a lot of what we called Bank swallows, or river swallows around.
    About half the size of purple or bee martins. I think they belong to the fly catcher family.
    Where is their colony?
    Back in Oklahoma they had colonies with holes in river banks.

    I was lucky enough this past weekend to photograph a Frigate perched on a bannister at Pointe West on West Beach at San Luis Pass. I'd like to send you the photo(s).
