Yes, those are swallow nests. I've been to this spot probably 6 times and this is the first time I've seen them. Something must have changed to bring them into this area.

Sorry I'm late to the party, but Happy Birthday!! :D Great fossils you found!

IMO, hunting for fossils - surrounded by beautiful scenery - is a great way to spend a birthday ;)

(Belated) Happy Birthday!

That looks like a fantastic location to hunt at!

I'd love to see some pictures of the finds you brought home, especially the clams :)

It is a great area to hunt for fossils but it needs some new slumping to expose more area. In Alberta we can only surface collect so now digging. A wet fall with winter snows then lots of freeze thawing will be just the ticket for next year.
