Down by the lake, the Barn Swallows have hatched and are ready to leave the nest. As the birds grow the nests become more and more crowded.
These three are almost ready to go.
Oh, make that four! Don't you love their little clownish pouty mouths?
Guess who will be fed first?
Yeah me, lady. You wanna make something of it?
The brood from this nest has fledged so the swallows will repair the nest and lay another set of eggs.
We are fortunate indeed to witness the life of the birds in our area. Almost makes up for missing the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks who seemed to have passed us by on their way north.
