A favorite spot for me to visit is the Wetlands Institute. There is lots to see inside, but I have often spent my time out of doors. The gardens are really wonderful, and often full of butterflies - my favorites. Behind the building, a long trail runs through the wetlands to the water.
A year or two ago I found a whole tree full of swallows along the trail.
The next picture was not taken at the Wetlands Institute,
but I think it may be appropriate to include it, since it is
so like the tree full of swallows.
This one is a tree full of turkey vultures, not at the Wetlands, but was taken on a country road not too far from the scene.
Our friend, Tom, is kind enough to host Sky Watch every week. The project has grown to 225 participants from all over the world.
The list of links to all the posts can be found at his blog, Wigger's World.
