The swallow nest is gone from the tunnel at 98th South
After I park at the 98th South entrance to the Jordan River Parkway, I walk through the tunnel under the street and then about 100 yards to the edge of the river, where the path ends. I noticed this morning that the nest built by the two swallows who dwell there had been removed. All traces of the mud were gone, so it wasn't a case of someone taking a stick and poking at the nest. I assume that employees of South Jordan City removed the nest. Too bad. I enjoyed seeing the nest there. Maybe somebody complained about the swallows flying in the tunnel. Maybe the city was concerned about liability.
