Swallows

Our little blue birds, the Swallow, will soon be making their way back to South Africa, in fact most are probably on their way already. I keep looking up when I'm out thinking it won't be long now. The Swifts have already gone, so I thought I'd pay these guys some attention before they depart my neighbourhood for another year.


Some of the juveniles looking nice and pristine in the warm evening sun.

  1. I love to watch them divebombing for insects at dusk each evening... especially since I've been attacked by marauding mosquitoes!

  7. Nice shots Adam!:) I saw a lot of them lined up on the telegraph wires yesterday, getting ready to leave. Haven't managed a good shot of them all the time they've been here!:(

  8. Migration really is a remarkable thing - how can something so small and so young pull it off!

    The iron beach is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Desecration? Yes. History? Yes as well.

  9. Our Welcome swallow (Hirundo neoxena) looks very similar but doesn't announce the seasons so dramatically as yours'! Thanks for sharing.

  16. Swallows are like icing on the cake. I think we take them for granted so many times but they are wonderful birds! I don't know if I told you this but I love your header!

  18. To have them so close by where you live is fantastic. I would be watching them daily. And waiting patiently for their return.

    thanks for linking in this weekend.
