It may still be early in the breeding season in many parts of North America, but this week's featured bird may already be nesting - the tree swallow is the earliest returning migrant swallow on the continent. With brilliant blue and white plumage, these graceful swallows with their chirpy calls and insectivorous appetites are always welcome.
