Barn Swallow

Hirundo rustica


Well known small passerine bird - pics 1 to 4 juveniles, probably learning to fly; and the pic 5 an adult bird. Juvenile recognized by that yellowish around the bill, and the absence of tail streamers.


Very common bird in our region, but this year I had the impression there were much more numerous than previous years... Here, youngsters seen in many villages on Pelješac peninsula of Dubrovnik riviera.
