Here’s a group of photos I took at a Barn Swallow nest, which was built on a light fixture in the covered portion of the parking lot where I work. The parents dive-bombed and swooped at all the people who parked nearby. They had only one brood before moving on. It’s a credit to the building owner that they let the nest remain throughout the entire process. This was a few summers ago, but I’ve never published all of these photos.
More photos below.
The top photo was published previously on a different website. It was a “funny caption” post. Here are a few of the comments it received:
- “See, no backtalk from me. That’s why I’m the favorite.”
- “What’s the big deal ~ so you can sing!! But I’m the pretty one.”
- ““Oh boy, being the middle child is AWFUL, especially when you’re with a bunch of big mouths.”
- “The next guests of Bird Calls radio singing Chipmunk Christmas carols. ALVIN!!!”
If you have a good caption for the above photo, comment or send me an email.
Here are some more photos of the young swallows.
