Barn Swallows

For the last couple of years we have had a couple of barn swallows raising their new families on our back porch. This year was no exception. Mama and Daddy had 5 baby birds. Very cute little things, although a bit messy. Anyway, all but 2 babies had flown away before we went camping this past week so when we came home, we knew they would all be gone and sure enough they were. Well, imagine our surprise when one fat baby bird came back to the nest today. :) Not only did it come back, but the parents are still feeding it! I have never seen this happen before so I'm not sure if he's just the "runt" or lazy. lol But, I'm glad I got to see him at least for one more day. They really are pretty birds. Just beware as they will dive bomb you when you go out the back door. :)
