  14. Swallows ARE special, and great to watch hunting insects over water especially. Yours are a little darker than our Welcome Swallows I think.

  17. Beautiful photos of the swallows, Bob.
    If they sit on the floor, they grab some clay for their nest.
    They do it here in the Netherlands so.

    1. No, it wasn't that, in fact, they had built their nest, this is different, thanks Irma.

  18. Resulta interesante porque rara vez se ve a las golondrinas posadas en el suelo, generalmente siempre están en vuelo. Un abrazo,
