Darting through the air. Nests under the dock.
Sunrise Hike to Cattail Pond I see these birds swooping around over the pond in the early hour. usually too fast to photo. Today two settled in a treetop and I had a chance to photo
The Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world. It is a distinctive passerine bird with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tail and curved, pointed wings. It is found in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. In Anglophone Europe it is just called the Swallow; in Northern Europe it is the only common species called a "swallow" rather than a "martin".
