    and a delicious insect cake was shared by all….

  2. Mmmm…Yummm..if you’re a bird! lol.

    Sounded pretty windy there. Lots of birds though to enjoy that delicious insect cake.

  3. Karen Too says:

    Fun video, and I especially like the aspect of the bird captured in the very last frame.

  4. jojo says:

    Happy Birthday Dood, keep walkin…

  5. Jeff says:

    swallows – love it. That is the most in one spot I have seen. Kind of like a swarm of mosquitos….
    Nice video. thanks for the “live action” shot. It is appreciated.

  6. Sera says:

    Pretty sure those are barn swallows, they are eating bugs. They aren’t afraid to get too close to you too. Apparently, there are a lot of bugs around that ditch.

  7. Don says:

    your humor has devolved to a sub human level

  8. Rick says:

    Bird watching on ur b-day…really nice present

  9. Molly Lamoureux says:

    Hi Matt, just checking in on your glorious walk.
    You pictures are remarkable, as usual.
    Wishing you fair weather and peaceful evenings.

    I like the reflection of the clouds in the water.

  11. Terry in SC says:

    Happy BD, and half way. Congratulations. It’s great of you to let us live vicariously through you ! Thank You Matt!

  12. Linda Connelly says:

    happy belated birthday!

  13. Ummm… actually it’s titled Bird-day, not birthday. I thought Matt’s actual birthday was back a couple of months? Go back in the archives I believe he celebrated his birthday back in Pa. if I’m not mistaken. But hey, you have more birthday wishes, either late or early depending on how you look at it.

  14. Sven says:

    Are you on top of a bridge? The swallows might have nests underneath. They love to nest under roofs or any other manmade cover.

  15. Tracy says:

    My ornithologist husband says they are cliff swallows and that they are nesting under the bridge (and eating bugs).

  16. Janell@fgo says:

    You captured the ever present wind too. Can’t get away from that in ND, can you.
