An encore to bird week, I had to add this little guy that I managed to catch on Friday afternoon. He was standing on a nesting box and chatting away. They return to the nest 10 to 20 times per hour, so if you find a nest, usually in a dead tree (thus the name), or a birdhouse, camp out and you’ll get the shot!
Tree swallows have iridescent feathers on their back, and I was wondering if that looks different in infrared? I’ll have to go back and find out.
