Two Shots for the Weekend

Barn Swallows

June 9, 2018

Here are just two shots from this weekend, which  I thought were worth showing. Thanks to Luke and Jonah for showing me the Tiger Shrike. 

I was also happy to see many swallow nests under the shop awnings in the streets of Shirone. Many of the stores there have made special platforms for swallows to nest and I even stepped into a piece of newspaper especially placed beneath a nest to catch whatever falling debris there may be. I'm such a Mr Bean.
