Swallow on the Hunt

One of the more interesting things to see at the Welcome Center at Beaver Creek State Natural Area is a nesting box of Tree Swallows.  There is a remote camera setup in one of the nest boxes that is connected to a large screen TV inside the Center which allows visitors to watch and listen to what’s going on inside the box. Yesterday afternoon I decided to try and get a photo of the adults coming or going from the nest.  I got lucky and caught this adult, probably the male, just as he was jetting from the box to hunt for more bugs to feed their hungry brood of six young ones.
