Cliff Swallow Builder

Cliff Swallow ( petrochelidon pyrrhonota) with the early makings of a nest. A number of cliff swallows were building their structures on this wall.


Shot at ISO800 on my E520. Most cliff swallow nests are under eaves in less-than-ideal lighting. I'm also careful to keep my distance from nesting birds. This was shot from a public walking path where the swallows build nests each year.
