Title: Day trip, Haldimand and Niagara
Post by: Napper on August 25, 2021, 09:42:01 pm
We had an appointment today in Port Colborne, so I made the trip Through Hagersville for a fuel stop.

While driving from Hagersville to Port Colborne I thought I was seeing Starlings along the power lines, NOPE! Swallows all different types mostly Tree Swallows and lots of Barn Swallows.

On the way home Through the Wellandport area just South of Hwy 20 the same. Never seen so many Swallows. They were everywhere. "Caister Center road"


Similar thing but not as many on backroads between Hwy 89 and Hwy 9 on Tuesday on way home from Beach.
I had a dashcam today I should have a look.   ;)

Sort of ... like this:

and yet ... most of the power outages in the USA are caused by squirrels!
