I saw two holes in the bank along the Middlebury River. I didn't see any birds but maybe the swallows found the bank.

Neat. It's cool to find them in a more natural setting than this one. My friend and I found at least a few of them in every sand pit we could poke our heads into along 116, but this one was the mother lode. There is one more near you, on Schoolhouse Hill Rd. that I want to check too.
