Glad it has been figured out already! Great WW!

Lana and Mike - thanks for playing! Tree Swallows they are! As Mike points out, the feathers are diagnostic. As Lana points out, the file name is even more diagnostic *LOL*
I counted three as well. Thanks much to you both!

I also go with Tree Swallow: I think the use of the feathers in the nest is a dead giveaway. I've counted and recounted and come up with three nestlings, too. Not very original, I know . . . .

Great image from the inside of a nestbox! It's wild to see what we've been missing before nestcams came along!

I see 3 nestlings, for sure. I'll bet they're tree swallows (considering the name of the photo. *LOL*) Very nice!

ATTENTION

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.

ACCEPTANCE

  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
