Fall and the signs of it.

Fall seems to have come to Ambergris. The birds have been returning this week, Herons, warblers and the most noticeable at the moment is the swallow down from Cozumel. Opportunistic feeders is the term used for them, were offering the opportunity to eat lots of bugs right now. A cool north wind is blowing the bugs up front after the rains have helped spawn them.
The name Cozumel comes from the Mayan word Cuzamil-Peten, which means "Land of the Swallows’,
They live as a giant colony there in the cliffs and visit us in mass when we offer up bugs.
