With their forked tail and graceful flight, most people are quite familiar with swallows. Their image is often used for prints and other objects decorated with birds.
There are several subspecies of the swallow, but today is all about the barn swallow.
Like their name implies, barn swallows are easily found in and around barns. One of the gorgeous settings at my workplace, is this stunning farm property which boasts two barns, and plenty of barn swallows during the summer.
We usually get several nesting pairs under the deck of one of our barns.
We utilize that space for table and chair storage so the swallows grow very used to people walking around the area.
Once hatchlings begin to grow, we often see them hanging out along the wire fencing along the farm as they master their flying techniques.
You can also count on seeing mama hanging around to watching them grow!
