Barn Swallows

A couple months ago some barn swallows started nosing around the upper exterior sill of our bedroom window.

After a lot of discussion they decided to build a nest.

There were four hatchlings, but two died.

That left two.

A few days after I took this picture I was standing and watching as the parents kept swooping in and stuffing food down the kids’ gullets.

They fledged last Friday.

It’s going to be pretty lonely out on the deck without the little ones and their parents flitting and squawking.

Maybe they will decide to have another family before winter.
