Boating Season winding down and Swallows on the River

What a great boating season! Sad that it's coming to an end this month, but we sure squeezed out as much as we could.

Sunset is when the swallows start swooping, but it gets pretty chilly when the sun goes down.

Then they gather in a huge cloud and fly around together until they funnel into the phragmites. I tried to get a video of it; see below.
