Last Monday June 22 I post this article about the Barn Swallows who nest above my front door. Mom and Dad were teaching their babies to fly, it took till Friday June 26 for them to get all four babies up and out of the nest! Mom is still feeding them, but we got to witness some great aerial displays, as Mom and Dad taught them all kinds of swoops and dives!
Now for the amazing part! After a hard day of flying, all four youngsters were resting on a branch in our Globe Willow.
I got one photo of her feeding the third baby!
At that point I thought, " I wonder where the Barn Owls are?" so I looked up and to my right, and there they were! Three of them, up till then I had only seen two! I was amazed! How often in a lifetime do we get this kind of honor!
This one was sitting down closer to where the baby Barn Swallows were perched!
These two were up much higher, and more to the right of where the lone Barn Owl was! Did we have two families of birds sitting in our tree at one time?I hope you enjoy the photos, hubby and I wonder if our Barn Swallow pair will lay more eggs this year, if so I will keep you posted!
