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.
George is bundled up!
Mom and Dad look pretty comfortable; Mom brought a thermos of Bull Shots: vodka and beef bullion- Yummy!
First they start swooping...
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.

Here is a video of the swallow activity on the river earlier this month. Check out the Swallow Post from last year for more info and photos.
