After being gone from Elkton for three days we are back and did our morning bike ride out Henderer Road this morning. To my astonishment, not a single Violet-green Swallow was seen. The power lines that only a few days ago sagged with the weight of hundreds of birds now were completely bare. Which leads me to conclude in regards to the two questions I pondered in my post before last that this was a collecting site that grew each day until the time was right, or everyone one got there, and now they have all left in-mass.
