Description

These are our male and female Tree Swallow Parents. When I took this photo, the female, was going back and forth from him to the bird box, and he would just sit there, moth in mouth. It was like she was saying, “go feed them!” And he would just wait. It’s been an absolute joy watching them reside in our bird box. Especially since they went through a day there battling sparrows. We helped fight them off!

"Sonny & Cher" I believe Sonny was trying to entice the babies out of the nest and Cher, the mama, was barking orders. Love my Tree Swallows
