Sky Watch Friday In Kefalonia - Day Three

This photo is still from my collection of holiday snaps from Kefalonia. The apartments that we stayed in for the week were brimming with bird life, mainly sparrows and, as shown, swallows. These guys were stopping on telephone wires for a rest from all the soaring and diving that they were doing. It was interesting to see them swooping down onto the swimming pool and snatching a mid-flight drink!

Check out all the other Sky Watchers here.


Come back tomorrow for 'Marley In Kefalonia - Day Four'

Beautiful, like musical notes!

Oh I so like this shot. I was thinking the same as sandycarlson . . . musical notes. Public TV here in Boston has a promo piece that is a short clip of birds landing on a wire and each time they land a note sounds . . . eventually a song is made.

Oh little birdies! This reminds me of a Pixar cartoon I watched. About birds on a wire ;)

Great Skywatch capture! Now, whenever I see birds on a line, I think of that hilarious Pixar short.

Here in Norway we call Swallows "Svaler". And there is a saying that says that if the swallows is flying high up in the air, there will be good and warm weather, but if they fly very low near the ground...it will rain.
Nice shot:)Petunia's SWF
