Pond at Creekside Church

Creekside Church
Conservation Drive, Waterloo, ON
28 May 2013

    The ignominious little pond at Creekside Church abounded with birds yesterday, during a day marked mostly by intermittent showers, and at times heavy rain. In fact, I saw the greatest concentration of swallows there that I have observed anywhere this year, as aerial insectivores seem to be declining ever more each year. The following pictures appear a little grainy, but they were taken through a film of air laden with moisture.

                      Tree Swallow, Barn Swallow, Eastern Kingbird
