Happy Mystery Monday! What plant is just starting to appear along the meadow edges? Hint: this native plant is often considered a weed, but its ecological benefits are nothing to sneeze at.
Last week, we asked you about the Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor)! Tree Swallows have iridescent blue wings with black tips and a white chest. They are often found around open meadows and wetlands, which host plenty of their favorite food — flying insects! They will line the nest with gently curving feathers to protect the eggs and lay 4-7 pure white eggs in each clutch.
