Swallows On The Roof & Flickers On The Beach


 We are headed for a 5 day heat-wave so I got an early start this morning.I decided to take a quick walk through the farm fields to the river. Seems there are a few birds on top of the barn roof. Wonder what they could be?
 Seems to be barn swallows (hope they had their shingles vaccine).
It was a short walk down to the river and it seems that the Sycamore Tree was loaded with flickers, a pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, and a couple of Cedar Waxings. They were all gone when they saw my camera come out.

I passed by a few butterflies along the way.
 Time for me to go. It's only 9am and already 90 degrees. Even the flickers are heading for the beach!
