Barn Swallows

Not all birds are for hunting. Here are some Barn Swallows that nest in a nearby parking garage. These guys are advanced fliers, darting in and out of the garage and chasing bugs in aerial dog fights at the nearest intersection. Ever notice how these little fork-tailed birds swarm at traffic intersections?  Maybe that’s where the bugs are.
