Barn Swallow feeding a trio of juvenile

Post on June 8, 2013 Barn Swallow Birds


One of my “must-have” bird photography is finding swallow or swift feeding the young in natural perch, and i’ve located a colony of barn swallows doing just that White Rock lake. The branches they perched is not too tall, roughly 8 feet in height so it’s at eye-level with nice green foliage as backdrop. it’s hard to see from this picture, zooming in, one can see line of saliva from adult to the chick.

They are quite approachable too, this is taken with bare 500mm.
