Tree Swallow Checkin It Out – Camera Critters #30

by Larry on November 1, 2008

This is a photo I took this summer while monitoring my nest boxes.  These Tree Swallows love to stick their heads out of their houses when they hear an intruder approaching.  Be sure to check out the other Camera Critters posts!

You’ve got a nice blog. I had first a bit of a problem finding you but with the help of Google I did. I love the Crane post too.

Hi Larry,
Thanks for stopping by my camera critters post! I like the little swallow peeping out to see who is approaching…. I didn’t know that they did that!!
I read several of your other posts…such sad info on the # of birds killed by windows! :( I always use bird alert decals which are seen from inside your home as a frosted look but are seen by the birds as being purple red an alert to avoid flying in that direction. I bought them on line. So far they have worked very well. Hope you have a good weekend.

I love these birds, except I’ve had one come out further and swoop around me! I have learned to stay far back from the houses. :)

I love to see swallows and housemartins, a sure sign of summer in the uk. They do tend to make their home in the strangest of places.

@Marie thanks for stopping by with a comment

@Wil thank you. I’m glad you found me! I am looking forward to a trip to see the Sandhill Cranes locally here in California

@Tina it is sad about the window collisions but I think we can get a handle on it. I sell the window alerts here http://birdsinmyyard.com/index.php?cPath=1_25

@Gretchen and Dot thanks for the comments

@Lisa I have had them swoop down on me many times but they never make contact. I actually have a photo of one of the Tree Swallows coming right at me! I love it!

@Babooshka yes they do.

How cute! I can hear him asking “Hellooooo? Scuse me, anyone out there got something to eat?” heheheh

Living on a farm, I see lots and lots of Barn Swallows – I think they are so pretty.
