Flying Practice

We went over to Touvelle State Park this afternoon to enjoy a shady trail along the banks of the Rogue River for a walk for Buster and some birding for us.  Right away we noticed a lot of Tree Swallows.  After a little observation we found this adult overseeing some juveniles taking their first short flights.  There were actually three juveniles; one is just out of the frame. I was lucky enought to get one of the juveniles warming up its wings.

  1. Ahhhh-I love the "wingersizing" juvie! I really need to work harder at getting my own swallow photos. Thank you for sharing.
