Our birding lately consists of trying to keep baby Barn Swallows in the nest and our Robins fed. Both birds are nesting right were we can see them out a window and its hard letting nature take its course. We had a time finding mealworms for the Robins, but they seem to like the nightcrawlers I've been putting out.

Our Barn Swallows hatched 24 June. There are five babies. I only learned today, there were five. I had thought four.
Picture one: Three-day old Barn Swallow
Pic Two: Nine days old
Pic three: Twelve days and out of the nest
Pic 4: Taken today, day 13 and after countless times of putting babies back in the nests, my husband built this. I was getting concerned that the parents would stop coming because of how often I'd have to go out. The parents have taken to it just fine. I am sure one or more are in there already.
Pic 5: The two parents resting in the heat of the day.
