Barn Swallow with Nesting Materials

Post on April 29, 2014 Barn Swallow Birds


Watched a small colony of barn swallows building nests under a bridge and i couldn’t resist to risk my back for low level shooting. It’s an interesting process how they pick up small sticks, tree branches or some fibrous materials on one location then fly to nearby mud puddle, dip the nesting materials in the mud as adhesive coating to construct their nesting platform – White Rock Lake.
