Our House Side Cliff Swallows

Thrilled to see the nest preparation and the three hatchlings. We hoped one or more would fledge, but one fell (or was shoved) from the nest and a second the day after. I did see the third in the nest, but now no signs of the last nestling or adults.

This nestling survived for a few hours after falling from the nest.

Camera Notes. First photo taken with a Canon 7D with EOS 100-400 mm IS. All the rest 
shot with OMD EM5 with M.Zuiko f2.8 40-150 mm.

  1. Guess nature is survival of the fittest. That small fragile baby simply melts my heart. So sorry they did not survive to adulthood. Your photos would have been fun to see.
