Wednesday, May 17, 2017 Treed Swallows

Seward, Alaska

The continuing rain grounded dozens of TREE and VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS. They festooned the branches of two downed trees like living feathered ornaments, twittering and preening. After a bit of a rest, they resumed sailing over the pond in mesmerizing loops and swoops, snapping up insects while others landed for their turn.

What a marvelous sight on this rainy day!

Happy Birding!
