Feeding these young Swallows is a fast paced non stop project.
We stopped by the Riverside Cemetery in Essex Connecticut. The grounds are not huge however they sit right on the Connecticut river on an inlet close to where the river widens and finally gets to the ocean (Long Island Sound).
There are trails here, benches, and people are invited to walk through the grounds, or sit and enjoy the quiet.
Along the river’s edge nesting boxes of Swallows sit with the tall trees and marble benches. We watched and photographed the birds for an hour or so. They didn’t seem to mind us as long as we kept a reasonable distance.
