Flood Plain Walk

     Not too long after I learned from the Blue Jay Barrens blog that Tree Swallows will nest in Blue Bird boxes, I noticed this pair on the flood plain in our neighborhood.  The photo isn't the best, but I couldn't resist trying.  The Swallows seemed patient, but it's difficult to keep Hudson still long enough to get a good shot.  He learned long ago not to spend too much time on birds, especially when there is a better game afoot....

    ...such as may be found in a Woodchuck burrow.  He disappeared into the hole right after I took this photo and I had to reel him in - or out.
