SWALLOWS UP

Between rains this morning we walked the dogs in Joe Dancer Park.  At least a dozen Barn Swallows were coursing across the treetops.  They may be the last flock I see here this autumn.  Plenty of robins have arrived.  The were scattered across the fields at Joe Dancer. Elsewhere in town  flocks could be seen flying between one tree clump to the next.  The robins never use our feeders but do appreciate a good bath occasionally.
