1/3: New stickers in my online shop! This has been another summer I’ve been privileged to observe a barn swallow family. These pictures aren’t the best – the barn eaves are tall & I climbed only as far as felt safe on a rickety ladder to observe them more closely one morning.2/3: The babies sit quietly in the nest until one of the parents swoops in with a certain call & food. Then each chick stretches their neck as tall as possible and opens their mouth as big as possible, hoping to be the recipient. 3/3: Understandably, the parents have a rest nest nearby. Tag team feeding seems exhausting.
