Wordless Wednesday: Barn Swallows Taking a Break

Barn Swallows

Almost wordless: This pair was busy catching bugs over the DuPage River. They stopped on the bridge railing for a few minutes to preen. Male, with the redder underparts, is on the left and the female is on the right. Their nest is under the bridge.

    I fell in love with barn swallows when I was a little girl, and I love them still. Wonderful capture, Leslie!

    Ahhhhh, they are so cute I just wanna give them a hug. I wonder if any babies will emerge from that nest??!

    Lovely, Leslie!

    I recently read an article that said that barn swallows are becoming endangered in eastern North America because newer barns are closed up and don’t offer the same nesting places that older structures that are falling down or being replaced did.
