Description

Around the perimeter of a field where emergency helicopters sometimes land, there are orange marker balls to indicate power lines. Every year, a swallow family moves into one of them and raises a little family 🙂

    Hi Belen,

    I think these are either Violet-green Swallows or Tree Swallows. They don’t look like Barn Swallows, which would have a rusty-colored chin, not a white chin. Our guide to common nesting birds can help you narrow it down: http://nestwatch.org/learn/focal-species/.

    Thanks for sharing!
