High and dry

In spite of a very dry summer, the breeding season continues to roll on.

For aerial insect hunters, like this Dusky Woodswallow, warm summer days are a boon for flying insects. As I watched this adult at the nest (with at least two young), small flocks of woodswallows were foraging high above the forest as the morning started to heat up.
