Meet the Swallow Family

The four young ones

I have a darling family of barn swallows in my (of course...) barn! My granddaughter Athena, while hanging around in my old studio, has made friends with them. She talks to them (as do I) and even hung clothes hangers around so they could have perches to sit on. They seem to love them!

The mating dance

Here are some of my best photos from the last couple of months. Shows them from conception to fledglings. Really quite charming and pretty!

Watching me watching it!

The day they fledged!
