Nest update - how quickly they grow

As a brief rainstorm started tonight I took this photo of the chicks in the nest alone - I gently lifted the basket down off the hook and quickly put it back after a couple of photos. What a difference a few days has made to their feather development.
About five minutes after I took that shot mama showed up for the night shift.

  1. How exciting to be able to watch the development. I think the swallows have abandoned all of the nesting boxes, but we have one barn swallow with chicks in the nest under the peak of our roof. You can hear them calling most of the day now. We need to paint our porch roof, but now we have an excuse to put it off for a while. - Margy
