Three for Lunch! by vignouse

Three for Lunch!

Three? Yes - count the yellow beaks.

In fact it's four as there's another baby swallow in this nest out of shot to the right. The nest is up high in our woodshed and there is another to the left of it but the eggs in that one haven't hatched yet.
Lovely capture Richard. Looks like they were expecting you to feed them.

OMG so wonderful. Mom and Dad have moved into my birdhouse and where in fact making babies Sunday./ I am so in hope of getting some kind of photo. But it won't be this good.

This is a great shot of these hungry baby birds.

Wonderful capture. I wonder what the nest is made of.

Great capture...nice details and light

Good ruse to close the garage door...much cosier in the woodshed. Stunning detail.

Great shot - they nest so high and so close to the roof that it is difficult to get an image.

@gardencat Thanks Joanne - the nests are made of mud and lined with grass and feathers... Google it and/or look on YouTube, it's quite fascinating to see how they make them.

Just wait until this crew turn around and hang their bottoms over the edge of the nest - you will have to clean up with a hose!

Great shot. It takes real patience to get a shot like that.

Always hungry! Love it, super image...fav

@vignouse Thanks for the answer. I thought, from the texture in your shot, that it looked like mud or some kind of regurgitated matter.

Great shot

how gorgeous!

If I were the one to try to get this shot, you could bet there would be a gigantic condor-mummy right behind me ready to defend her nest!

A thoroughly professional job Richard. Well done
