Barn Swallow Mystery
For as long as I can remember in my 61 years there has been dozens of pairs of Barn Swallows call this old barn home every summer. This morning only two pair came to feed off the insects that took to the air as I mowed the pasture. What tragedy could have occurred either on their migratory journey or in their winter nesting site? I can only hope that they will over time rebuild their population and continue to use this old barn for their summer nesting site as they have done for all these years.
