Barn Swallow

Hirundo rustica


These Barn Swallows use to build their mud nests under the roof of the apartment buildings but they would get dirty all the walls. So, they don't let them build them any more, but to my surprise, they still sleep there but in the plants. These are night shots.


Semi tropical.

@Laura, the reason these images appear this way is due to the use of quick burst flash (notice the red eye). Luis also mentions how these were taken at night. Cheers
