This morning, I heard lots of sweet birdy noises outside our bedroom window. I peeked through the blinds to see a gathering of barn swallows!
They were hanging about on the power lines that lead up to our house.
I went outside to get another photo...
...and they flew off to sit on the main power lines!
Barn swallows are some of my favourite birds. A few weeks back, there were a few of them swooping all around us as we walked down to the barn to see the chickens. They were catching insects (probably mosquitoes, as it was evening) and were flying quite low to the ground (and VERY close to us!)
I am behind on blogging and blog reading, but I intend to catch up soon. Thanks for reading!
