Low-rent Ecology

A friend who lives in a fairly ancient building in a gritty area of the East Bay shares the structure with two highly desirable species of fauna. One is a strain of Italian honeybees that attracts keepers when it swarms. The other is an endangered swallow that has decided to make itself at home in Andy's walls.

I suspect that a long-established neighborhood harbors species that grew accustomed to Euro-American presence in the late nineteenth century, plenty of time to adapt and settle in -30-
