It's a rainy spring day here in Oregon's Willamette Valley, and for a while this morning the female Violet-green Swallow came inside and crouched in a corner of the nestbox. At times she was apparently sleeping, with her bill tucked into the feathers on her back. Then at about 9:30 she departed, even though the rain was still falling outside.
