Beautiful pest control

Every year, it seems, the tree swallows beat out the bluebirds for squatter's rights in the nesting boxes that we have set up in our yard. While I would love to have a family of bluebirds living near us, I can't really complain about the tree swallows. They are beautiful and entertaining in their own right, and they constantly patrol the air, devouring insects as they go.

I'm hungry!

Open wide for Mamma!

Daddy searches the sky for mosquitoes.

Here ya go, kiddo!
