Nature Walks – Barn Swallows

I don’t what it is about Barn Swallows, but I am just fascinated by them. I think they are beautiful little birds. But don’t be fooled by their tiny size. They can be quite fierce and aggressive too.

I am seeing quite a few of these tiny little fighters all over the place. They are out and about. They come to Colorado in April and stay throughout the summer, though some stay a bit longer and don’t leave until October.

They really seem to like this particular light post.

Every now and then, I see them on a different light post too. We used to have a nest in our rafters, but once we painted our house, the nest was taken down and they never returned.

I got lucky on this one. He was just about to take off and fly away, but I got one more good shot of him first.

Have a great day and make everyday great. ‘Til next time.
