This Nest territory is at the end of a private dirt road where there are only two houses nearby so quite a quiet area.
The Nest Tree was struck by lightning in 2016.
It seemed for a while the Eagles were building a Nest in another Tree, & then we lost track of what they got up to.
This year they were back to using the Lightning Tree, according to the neighbours.

The parents are coming & going quite regularly, feeding each one.
They jump up & open their beaks at any sound.

Since i was already out & it was late enough that the Gas Bar was closed, it has been on my mind to check if the Barn Swallows are nesting there again, so i decided to stop by.
i turned around & headed into the outside pump & bingo, there they were, quite big already!
& they are already sporting their distinctive colouring.

There wasn*t enough light to set my camera to freeze movement but these not quite sharp fotos give you the idea anyway.
Look at that colour inside the mouth!
How could you possibly miss?
 


i just LOVE their goofy fluorescent clown gapes!
 

 


Usually there are three.
i am seeing a fourth in behind there this year!

i was checking inside a house when i heard all this loud thumping on the roof!
It sounded like Otto was up there!
What the heck?
i went out & very quickly realized it was Ravens!
There were five noisy fledglings up there!
i believe it is the cherry Tree in the yard attracting them.
They were so goofy & fun to watch i got distracted & left without taking the house keys with me!
Got home & just couldn*t figure out where i*d put them.
Replayed the recent past & decided maybe i*d left them in the door because of the Ravens?
So had to drive back there, hoping for the best.
Yay, there were the keys & there were all five Ravens again!
