Goodbye yellow brick road

When are you gonna come down?
When are you going to land?

Barn Swallow Hotel along roof eaves of abandoned building across from Kansas Originals Markets, Wilson, Kansas. This was taken from inside our camper as the wind was unbelievable! 7/7/20

Swallows were common sights during our travels, often seen flying over fields, barnyards, and frequently right in front of our truck. According to https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Barn_Swallow/overview “Barn Swallows often cruise low, flying just a few inches above the ground or water. True to their name, they build their cup-shaped mud nests almost exclusively on human-made structures.” And true to their nature here they were. We were totaly amazed at this long line of hotels. Swallows flew in and out of these “hotel suites” so fast it was almost impossible to capture a photo.

These birds moved so fast it was very difficult to capture a clear photo.
