We've had one nesting pr. with 5 young expected to fledge in 11 days.
Usually have at least 3 pr. with many others flying about. Not so this
yr.. Same with barn swallows. For the last 2 yrs. we've not had more
than a doz. of either lining up on our power line in late summer before
migration. Used to be many, many dozens. :'(
The 100 acres behind us were mowed on Wed.. I didn't see a swallow. Same
when the school lawns are being mowed. Always before the birds were
swooping overhead in great numbers to get insects. We no longer see
those many insects.
Rachel Carson ... we need you again to lead a new fight.
