Barn Swallows (Tsubameツバメ)

Right next to our balcony, there were 14 Barn Swallows sitting and preening on the lines.

An adult has a dark orange throat and long tail-streamers.

 A juvenile has yellow all around his face, throat and breast.

This young one couldn't stay still... it was like he was saying 'hey!' to his friend.

but was ignored... so he was creeping towards him...


don't bother me!

He was doing the same to another 3 young ones... was he bored or was it a kind of affectionate behaviour?


We have spotted a couple of swallows' nests around our place, some of which are lucky to have a board under them. Glad to know some people do care about those birds:)
