[Bristol-Birds] Re: Tree Swallow at Bristol, TN

Wallace et al.,
Actually, 26 Feb ties the early arrival date for Tree Swallow in Northeast
Tenn (5 county area), set in 1998 & 2001.  The former occurred in Unicoi
Co., while the latter was in Washington Co.  Swallows are the "light at the
end of the tunnel", with spring just coming into view. (It's about time.)

Good find, chief.
