We made a trip to the farm ponds this morning just to see if anything interesting was out there as the remains of the hurricane come in. Not much to see - except that a couple of hundred swallows were swarming over the lower pond. Occasionally they would touch the surface. They appeared to be tree swallows, although they were far enough away and moving so quickly that they were difficult to identify the exact kind. They were definitely not barn swallows. This behavior continued for the several-minutes period that we watched them.
