Peering out - all I could see were barn swallows, swooping and swarming and chittering- above the porch roof and right past my window..
All thru the day, I saw hordes of them - which is unusual.
I typically see several pairs, at their nest boxes around the property, or in the early evening, zipping around the barn , catching an evening meal on the fly.
I can only assume, they are gathering together for an annual migration- sad to see them go.
I got a few photos of them, en masse, lining the electrical wires at the edge of my property. Even when it started to rain, they were there. The pix are not that clear, the wires are a distance away. Click on photos for a possibly better view!!!
Next to leave, will be "my" hummers - will be very sad to see them go!!!!
