These pretty tree swallows were captured in photograph by my talented, artistic brother-in-law, Rob, at one of our local parks. I took a little liberty with the background, which really doesn’t show up very well in the scan, but the birds are the stars of the show anyway. These beautiful birds have iridescent dark blue head and back feathers and stark white fronts. Tree Swallows feed on small flying insects that they catch in their mouths during acrobatic flight. I bet that’s a grand sight to see!
Thanks to Charlie from Doolewash for appropriately assigning the prompt of feathery today, and again thanks to Rob for the great reference photo!
