Big day today for the Barn Swallow family. All six siblings were out testing their wings. They perched on the fence all day long, in pairs or a group of four, preening and flapping vigorously especially when mom or dad came in with a snack. Occasionally relatives dropped by to relax.
Sometimes when the adult flew in to feed one of the sibs, it would start a little tussle of wings and verbal commands, causing the baby to leave its perch. Then the two would fly off together for a while.
