A Forlorn Time of Year — Sunday, September 19, 2021

The Barn Swallows gathered, filling the shimmering electric lines

They stayed there a good length of time.
Then lifted up as one

Then they were gone.

COME BACK NEXT YEAR, I called!  THANK YOU FOR THIS YEAR!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  1. Yes, they’re off to their winter home. But the winter birds should be arriving soon! Had a couple hummers visit this morning, so they’re still coming through!

  2. So many swallows! It was the weirdest thing here…normally we have huge congregations on the wires as well, although usually mostly Tree Swallows. This year we only saw a few hundred here and there. Maybe we were just not in the right place at the right time. I miss them though
