I have been here in Italy with my brothers.  I have seen millions of what I gather are Bank Swallows or a unique European version of Tree Swallows. In the beautiful medieval towns of Florence, Pisa and Siena which we visited they "control the skies" 2nd, of course, to the Rock Doves. Here in Venice where we are staying with my Redemptorist confreres the Rock Doves above and on the Plaza of St. Marks  will greet us tomorrow when Benedict XVI  comes to Venice for a huge open air Mass.  Enjoy some of our moments.
