This is the third month of the worldwide Year of the Bird, and the staff at Bandelier chose white-throated swifts as the bird of the month.
So far the swifts haven't returned to Frijoles Canyon, but they could show up any day! One day the sky is quiet, and the next day there are suddenly small birds whizzing around, looking for insects. Besides the swifts, there will soon be violet-green swallows also animating the canyon skies.
The theme for March is pollinator and native plants.
