Sunday (winged things 6-28-09)

I have six active swallow nests in my barn right now and each one has three babies so I thought I would show some of the little cuties.

They are so CUTE! We had sparrow's nesting in our carport. We think it was the same pair we had last year. Anyway, Cowboy found the female dead in the yard before any babies were born. We were so sad because the male was friendly. He would sit on the porch rail and watch us.We still see him, but he is alone. Maybe next year!

Wow! Those are some big babies. I'll bet it wasn't easy getting and indoor ceiling shot. I tried getting a shot of a moth on the ceiling of my porch, and my camera couldn't focus.

Aww, those babies in the second shot are so CUTE!!!
And the top photo makes me laugh. Looks like that baby is yelling 'Feed Me!' and the parent is ignoring it. hehe! Those babies run (or is it 'fly'?) those parents ragged. :)

I took some photos of your swallows, too. But mine didn't turn out near as good as yours.
Good job!

Look at their faces! :) I couldn't find anything winged for Sunday Stills! Heard lots of birds...never saw them. Chased bees around the pasture for half an hour and got frustrated w/my camera, LOL!

Love the swallows - especially how they look at you! We have many, and they line up along our fencelines with parents to supervise!

Shirley said...

Great shots! That first one is hilarious!

I love swallows. It's my favourite time in the barn when those little fellows are chirping away at their parents who are working their wings to the bone to keep their hungry broods fed.

That little guy in the first photo sure looks indignant! :o)

These are great pics, Val!!! Baby birds are too cute-well all baby animals are just too cute, but your little birdies have such quizzical looks on their faces. :)
