Feathered friends - Welcome Swallows

I had noticed these teeny tiny birds on my regular walk and kept wanting to go back with my camera to capture them... one day recently I finally remembered to do it.

I'm not very knowledgeable about birds but am keen to learn. I thought they were finches but after a search online I think they are Welcome Swallows.

While I always prefer seeing birds living in a natural habitat this man-made structure they call home allowed me to get some very clear shots of them. When walking I see them duck and weave through the structure and calling out to each other, they have a delightful little song!

I took quite a few images and you can see more here.

You must have good zoom on your camera...those pics are amazing.

Hi Annie, yes it's a good zoom but I wasn't too far away from them. There is a chicken-wire fence between us so maybe they felt safe? I'm very happy with the pics :)
