First Flight

Hey, wake up, it's time to fly.

Aw, ma, can't we just hang out here a little longer and have a few more of those bugs before we go?

Our tree swallows fledged last week. We'll miss their cheery peeps. But our Barn Swallow nest has finally been rebuilt and mom is sitting on eggs. Good thing we put up the avian trampoline on the hot tin roof after all. -- Margy

  1. Swallows are just so nice to sit and watch, doing their acrobatics!

  2. Nothing like a swallow swooping after a bug, is there? I am so happy for you, Margy.

  3. Very cool to see the swallows using your birdhouse. Nice bird to have in your yard eating all the mosquitoes.

  7. I enjoyed your posts (the trampoline, the rebuilt swallow nest) along with this one. Swallows are always welcome to come and eat the skeeters.

  8. Thanks everyone for stopping by to read my Camera Critters post. Yes, Eileen, I think they do keep our mosquito population down. A walk in the forest really brings them out. - Margy

  10. You won't believe what happened at our cabin...the swallows pecked a hole into the side of the cabin, just below the roof at the peak ... Art and Andrew will be going up middle of Sep. to take the old wood siding off and replacing it ... then painting next year and we will, over the next year, replace the deck boards as well!
