|pair of nesting Bank Swallows|
|nest hole under the ridge of a high sand bank/pile. You can see how the sand under the hole is compressed from where the bird perches as it digs out the sand in the bank for it nest.|
|far left...start of a new nest hole, and the hole next to it..if you click on the photo to enlarge it...you can see sand being flung out of the hole from the bird inside making the hole bigger.|
|bird leaving the nest hole|
|checking it's mate inside the hole and digging|
The swallows are constantly flying in and out of the nest holes and making new holes.
