Baby Birds in the Barn

31 May

I was walking through the barn when I heard babies.  I love the little barn swallows!

I started looking to see which nest they might be in.  But I didn’t see them.  I listened and tried following the sound.

Soon I was face to face with Myson.

He really wondered what I was looking at when I was ducked beneath his chin to take pictures.  Do you see?

The nest is just in the corner.

I’ve never seen barn swallows lay their eggs down low like this.  I’m guessing it’s because we are so dry.  They can’t find mud to make their nests in the rafters.

If my goslings have a slim chance of making it to adulthood, I’m afraid these little ones will have an even tougher time.  I never saw an adult dive-bombing Myson or me when we were near.  This afternoon when I went through to check Joani, I could still hear them behind Myson again, but no parent was around.  Poor things.

I hope you’ll join me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  I have the items listed at the top of my sidebar.

Cold Brings the Birds

19 Jan

With the cold weather, I’ve been trying really hard to make sure I keep food in the feeders.

It’s certainly been popular.  Sorry for the poor quality.  I need to wash my windows again because of cat nose prints, but it’s too cold.

I do hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items are in the top of my sidebar if you are interested.
