First barn swallow of the year

The afternoon was sunny and warm, the insects were buzzing happily about over the Delta farmlands, and flocks of swallows came out to chase them down. One stopped for a breather overhead.

... noticed me taking his photo ...

and leapt straight up, then flew away.

Love those skinny feet!

And we found a critter I'd never seen before on the beach. Story tomorrow.

  1. Our first barn swallow arrived last week and has taken up possession of the old next site. I like to think it's Bert from last year. I think they are known for returning to the same place year after year. - Margy


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
