While watching a large number of tree swallows with their little fledglings in the willow trees. And then one little guy that came and landed on a pole right above me,looking for food from a passing adult. All of a sudden I noticed a splash of a different color. Sitting all alone on a branch. This little one looked pretty newly fledged. It sat,it preened and looked around,watching as all the other swallows flew from on branch to another,back and forth. Mouth opened wide a few times as the tree swallows flew near it. It was an adorable little babe. But as I sat and watched for a couple hours,it sat all alone. I never saw any more barn swallows. And I have no idea were it came from. But it was there and it was beautiful. One tree swallow almost looked as if it fed the little barn swallow but it was so fast I can not be positive. It finally flew and I lost rack of it. So many tree swallows flitting about. As I serched the skies above I also noticed an immature purple martin flying with the tree swallows. So it looks like we have a few visitors enjoying our families of tree swallows here. Will be intersting to see if I can find were the other 2 species are nesting. But it made for some exciting bird watching to start my day.
