Feeding time for the Barn swallow

Outside my mother in law’s door, a barn swallow’s eggs recently hatched.  Yes, that’s a large black fly on the nest too.


The picture below was taken through a window, so the colors are muted.  If I can upload it to YouTube…I’ll add a short video of the adult barn swallow feeding the babies.


This is what the Barn Swallow normally looks like (blue and black on the back with a rust colored chin).
