Full Nest

Last week, I was able to photograph some Barn Swallows (Hirundo rustica) at the home of some birder friends of mine, Pete and Ginny. They have a small barn with a couple of horses, and tons of Barn Swallows! There were several active nests, with several nests already fledging little ones and started on a second brood. Here are a few images I captured in their barn:

Bet the parents of these squawking toddlers can’t wait for the “Empty Nest Syndrome” to appear!

And a resting adult:
