Meal Time for Swallows

With fourteen occupied bird houses in our site here at Denman Wildlife Area, meal time is a noisy affair.  Similar to a large human family, there is much conversation taking place, but it seems to go on all day long. It’s a little hard for us, and especially for Buster, to relax in our front yard because on top of the din of all the chirping, there is also the distraction of getting dive bombed by one of the defending parents.  It does make for an interesting time, and today on top of all that action a family of House Finches was teaching their young ones to fly. Plus, the Lesser Goldfinch is still attacking our RV and car as it has since June 2nd.

  1. Did they have you sign a "war-zone" release form when you started your assignment? LOL I am sure it makes for an interesting day!
