Today, at noon, there were hundreds of Tree Swallows flying around the pine trees at the entrance to Millenium Park on Water Street. They appeared to be feeding on something – possibly midges?

(Note: I also heard that on April 7, there were “thousands” of Tree Swallows flying over Champlain Heights in the north end of Peterborough. D.M.)
