Wild Bird Wednesday


Barn Swallow

I spotted this young Barn Swallow while walking around Round Lake with my friend.  I am pretty sure he is a fledgling as he occasionally went into the wing fluttering, food begging mode.  Barn Swallows are beautiful and they eat flying insects i.e. mosquitoes, so they are always a welcome sight.

  5. What a sweet little fellow. You don't usually see them sitting around doing nothing. We have Welcome Swallows which are very similar to the barn Swallow.

  7. barn swallows are wonderful birds and so fun to watch. I have never seen one in a branch like this with berries. But, I have seen them feed the young in flight. That´s pretty cool !

  10. Very nice picture. I have my eye on a site where our Welcome Swallows (very similar species) seem to be interested in nesting - if they nest there, I should be able to get some shots like these.
