Pin Cherry and Juneberry (Amelanchier) are now in bloom in my yard. With the continued cool, wet weather, there were large numbers of swallows -mostly Tree Swallows – feeding over the Otonabee today between the zoo and Lakefield. In most sections of the river where I stopped (as far north as Lock 23), maybe two dozen swallows could be seen at a time. 50 or so birds were also feeding over the pond just north of the intersection of Water Street and University Heights Boulevard.
