Flight school at our house~

Well, the Robins and the Barn Swallows are teaching their chicks to fly! It's been fun watching them do take offs and returns.
The two Robins are a little slower (of course they were born a little later as well). One flew to a higher branch when we approached the nest and then landed next to us on the grass and proceeded to hop his way to our porch, poop and then run the rest of the way through the bushes. The other Robin stayed in the nest and didn't move. There is still a blue egg in the nest and we know it's a bad one so there it sits
.
The Barn Swallows are quite regal looking. Almost like mini hawks with the white line drawn from their beaks!
