Ready To Fledge

    I have a few birdhouse under the eaves of my house to give the swallows a place to nest.  Every time I walk out toward the garden I can hear the baby swallows chattering away as they encourage their parents to return quickly with some tasty insect.  Because they are in a birdhouse I can’t really get a good photo of them, but Joan pointed out this nest of young swallows under the eaves of the McBride Train Station and they look like they are about ready to fly out into the world.
    I have always heard that swallows eat mosquitoes, I hope that is so, because we presently have way too many of the things around our house.
