River Plantation Subdivision VI,X
Davidson Co., TN
Tuesday, 4 Aug. 2009
7-7:45 pm

As I walked back to my home in River Plantation subdivision from
an outdoor meeting, storm clouds from the approaching line of
thunderstorms began to arrive in the area.  Looking up in the sky
I saw a seemingly endless number of PURPLE MARTINs, flying from
SE to NW to meet the clouds.  I counted 766 birds by the end of
my walk but they continued to stream past toward the clouds as
I went inside my home.
