Seasonal Visitors

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Her Latin name is Tachycineta. Comes from Greek "takhukinetos" which means "moving quickly". And what a Flier she is! Watching her acrobatic fly-overs above the Pond is a delight. I know, this is the way she gets her food. But, to me, it goes beyond food. Right into the very nature of who she is... She flies over from the South to raise her family here. And the human-made Bungalows are waiting. Warmly welcomed! Lucky Bird!
