We have two Cliff Swallow nests at our house. One is on the front porch. And the other one is on the back porch. Every year, these guys set up shop to snuggle up and hatch some eggs. With that, today I climbed a latter and took some close up shots of the recently hatched birds. It’s cool to watch these guys grow up and slowly gain the gumption to climb out of the nest and spread their wings for takeoff. Last year, I managed to actually watch one attempt its first flight.
Pretty cool if you ask me.
