Description

This picture breaks my heart every time I think about it. The young tree swallow was trying to get its parents’ attention after it had fallen from the nest. It was in an area where not only could I not reach the bird, there was no way to get it back to the nest. I fear the tiny thing died soon after.

A tiny tree swallow chick looks up as its parent feeds a sibling in a nesting box at Potter Marsh, Alaska. This young bird had left the nest prematurely and was trying to get the adults' attention.
