Description

These barn swallow babies had just fledged the nest, and were awaiting breakfast. The nest is located in our horse barn, and we have had barn swallows nest here for several years. The adults don’t seem to be used to us being in the barn when we feed the horses in the morning, and immediately fly out of the barn, but these three awaited patiently on the barn rafter for a parent to return to be fed.
