the babies are so cute!
Hi Harriet,

Yes! That they are -- I've been pretty lucky with bird babies this season. . . just happen to have stumbled upon them for some reason.

This office complex has apparently been a boon to the swallows tho -- there are partial or full nest under a majority of the entrance shelters, and the barn swallows actually compete with the starlings in total numbers in the immediate area -- something I'll keep in mind for next season. . .

Barn Swallows fledge at 20 days after hatching, and then are cared for by their parents for another 2 weeks before they are totally independent -- so I probably have a little while before they leave the nest forever.
Maybe this is your chance to get a swallow in flight! All you'll have to dois to stand there prepared for two or three days :-).

Kidding. It's been a wonderful series so far, you really made the best out of this unusual opportunity.
