Swallows and Owls

Barn swallows were a new arrival this spring at our 'old house' and we were excited to have them. They've become one of Hannah's favorite birds to identify with their 'two tails'. Imagine her joy on one of her first mornings here when she woke up to see a barn swallow who'd gotten into the house flying over her head.



It was easy to catch in a butterfly net and transfer outside.

One thing I haven't seen at our new house - and likely won't - is Great Horned Owls. Not enough cover here. I snapped these pictures last week of one of the owls at the old house.




He skeers me.
