More shots of the barn swallow babies

I'm a little behind in posting pix of these little ones.

 I love their crazy "Einstein" hair - or perhaps its more like an old man's unruly eyebrows...
And here's a few pictures of mom and dad keeping watch at dusk from the power line to the house.
 Such cute little butts!

your pics are the best. I love butt shots. and when I saw those little heads all that came out of my mouth was "awk" over and over. guess I thought I was some kind of bird. pure delight here. that last photo is priceless.

I like the close-up shot. When little they are all mouth. Reminds me of some people I know.

T, ever get the urge to catch some bugs and feed them with tweezers!

Well I don't LOVE barn swallows because they make big ol' messes I have been cleaning up for years. But I always wait until their nests are empty. And they always come back to create a big mess and nest again. But your pictures are CUTE. Enjoy your weekend!

I just love swallows, but they are tough to shoot. They seem to be in perpetual motion...always swooping around you....teases.

Sharon said...

What a nice family! What? Mom and Dad BOTH taking a break at the same time? I guess they needed a little "alone together" time. :-)

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Great pictures, and I wonder just how they're all fitting into such tight quarters? I do think Mom and Dad need a night out, and I'm glad they were getting one! :-)

Debbie @ Swampbilly Ranch said...

I have those same hairs on my chin!! Somehow they look cuter on these guys though.

Linda said...

Thanks for stopping by....it was nice to hear from you. I have to agree they are such little cuties!

Debbie said...

they are just too darn cute!!!

i love that nest, i have never seen one like that before, it sure does look like a lot of work & it looks so big!!

do they leave when the babies leave?? do they come back and reuse the nest??

Debbie said...

I love this family.

They look like they are getting pretty active, and a little more fluffy.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

How precious... Love seeing the babies... Can't wait to see if Bluebirds try again to nest in our nestbox this year. I hope so....

Thanks for sharing. I LOVE 'em...
Hugs,
Betsy

Quite the 'dos' those lil fellas have. I like the 'eyebrow' idea. Nice all around once again.
Loved your hawk pics too. you are so fortunate to have such views every day by the pond.

edenhills said...

I usually love the barn swallows, but really ticked one off and was nearly attacked when I was changing a light bulb too close to their nest. Think I'll avoid them for a while and enjoy your photos instead!
