A hatch of barn swallows are away!

Two photos of the little swallows from a nest in the brooding spot for this year’s chicks.  They are incredibly agile fliers.   Apparently their population is in general decline but they seem to be doing well here.  A few old style buildings with historically good nest building spots likely make it an easy choice for them. 

Photo #1- I’m preparing the brooding spot on July 7.  The little one don’t look impressed. 

A couple of days later, the four little ones are sitting together on the fence and then the hydro line above the brooding building.

   Only one swallow nest and a robin nest in the brooding spot but certainly another half dozen or more swallow nests in different buildings on the farm.
