“Gone to the Birds”

pano gwb 222b

This was where Purple Martins swarm down into the Bradford Pear trees next to the 17th Street Farmers’ Market. Typically in July and August, crowds gather at dusk to watch 20,000 to 30,000 of the birds swoop into their trees. This year, however, the birds have not returned. A few fly by on some nights before moving on.
