Running out of room

We used to have overhead power lines going across our yard, and the swallows would gather on them... getting ready for their trek south, I guess. Sometimes the lines would be nearly solid with them. The overhead lines have been taken down and replaced with underground, so the swallows had to find a new gathering place.

This is, of course, our TV antenna.

What do you suppose they're saying as they chatter?

Set your TV tuner to channel 16.
That's the channel swallows broadcast on.
I'm not sure but I think they got that channel because of the association with that date in april at Capistrano.
You should be able to hear what they're planning for this winter.

I was wrong.
It's channel 19.
For March 19th.

Thanks, Dale. I kept trying and trying channel 16 and couldn't get it to work. Now I know why. ;-)
