Last Sunday the wind was blowing hard but that did not deter these little Tree Swallows from spending their day looking for a suitable summer residence and it sure seemed like box 29 was high on their list of desirable homes.
The competition was high and words of caution we flying as freely as these swallows glide through the skies.
A quick resting spot on the roof was in order and acceptable to both shoppers at box 29.

Aren´t they so beautiful!
….charming storyline for charming photographs–just lovely.
Love those iridescent feathers!
I love when tree swallows return to the nesting box on my fence every spring – they’re just now checking it out in earnest, despite arriving a couple of weeks ago.
I thoroughly enjoy watching their aerobatics. I think of them as the fighter pilots of the bird world. They seem to enjoy using me and my dogs as targets, swooping by us as we sit on the deck.
They are sweet things to be able to see. That shot of the one flying toward the camera is amazing.
Fabulous captures of these speedy shoppers!
