Got New Babies!

Just a little update on our baby swallows...

...They are hatched and growing really quickly.

They are constantly chirping for their parents to bring them their dinner! When you look in at them they all jump up with their mouths open ready for a snack. I caught the mother inside, and she did not look too happy to seem my big camera lens in her home. I guess she is not a reality TV type of bird. So, I made it quick!

This the father, waiting for me to get out of the way, he has a job to do. Those parents are in and out of the birdhouse from dawn to dust. They are very dedicated and busy parents, I guess like most of us!

So cute...wow.. you were lucky to get those shots. We have 2 birdie nests up under our deck and the mama's will literally take your head off if we go near them.

Very cute, our bird house is in a spot we can't see inside but we do enjoy seeing them fly in and out of it. We did not enjoy seeing them fly into our attic recently. It's Craig's turn to deal with this, he still owes me from when we had the bird in our house last year!

I was amazed that you got those shots inside the bird house! Very cool. We have bird nests in the pines that line our driveway...when the birdies are nesting, I have to walk along the far side of the yard to get the mail because, if I walk the driveway...they dive at my head all the way down! I'm thinking Alfred Hitchcock......

OMGosh! I can't believe you got those shots! That is just incredible! That just looks so cozy inside doesn't it? You never cease to amaze me. Oh, yea, I love the reality tv comment that was really cute. Love ya, Mona
