I drove through the Horizon Center in Roane County this morning, curious to see 
if the Cliff Swallows I saw there two summers ago had returned.  They had.  I 
parked briefly and walked onto the small bridge over Poplar Creek and was 
immediately surrounded by Cliff Swallows... about 50 of them chattering and 
swooping so near I could almost reach out and touch them.  I saw just two nests 
but could only view a section of one side of the bridge; could be most of the 
nests are on the other side.   The Horizon Center is a mostly unoccupied 
business park along Oak Ridge Turnpike (Route 95) a short distance from the 
58/95 split.
