In July, barn swallows start to gather in migratory groups. August is peak fall migration for barn swallows over much of Canada and the US.

Some things that fly are starting to think about migration (bird, monarchs), some are thinking about starting families (goldfinches), some things with leaves (sumac, Virginia creeper) are thinking about fall color and some things that like walks (Larry Weber) are starting to think about spiders, shorter days and berries.
