Barn Swallows & Northern Rough Winged Swallows at the L.A. Waterfront

Yesterday afternoon, I was walking along the L.A. Waterfront from the Maritime Museum parking lot to the Cirque du Soleil big-top, blue-and-yellow tent to see “Amaluna.” As I was walking by the water, through a line of trees on either side of the sidewalk, the barn swallows were swooping all around me like angels! They made me laugh with delight. I love their brilliant blue-and-orange colors … On the way back, after the show, the same thing happened again — only this time, the birds were northern rough winged swallows! They were very glad-hearted in flight, swooping together and apart in elongated oval and figure eight dances in mid-air, at top speed. Seeing them filled my heart with joy!
