A DAY IN THE PARK

Peter and I took the dogs and walked the north end of Joe Dancer Park. The Common Yellowthroat continues in the wetland park there. The Barn Swallows followed the lawn mower. The Violet-Grfeen Swallows gathered near a metal-roofed shed, perhaps for some solar warmth. It was cool morning after overnight lows in the high-40s. By 1030AM it was still in the sixties.
