Blue Monday

Barn Swallow.
Hirundo rustica. At Bush Terminal Park. Unusually, there was at least one Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) with the Barns there that day. I see Trees more commonly at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, where it’s the Barn who is rare.The blue here is on the greenish side, as it is wont to be depending on the light.But how about some Indigo Bunting (Passerina cyanea)? This is not a bird I see every year, although it looks like they nest in the Jamaica Bay area.Thoreau wrote that the (Eastern) “bluebird carries the sky on his back.” But there’s an awful lot of sky….
