The Barn Swallow is one of the most widespread species of swallow in the world.
You’ll find them in grasslands, barnyards and near open waters.
They have a beautiful cobalt blue that blankets their back and wings with a striking tawny underbelly.
We enjoy watching them wisp through the air catching bugs in the evenings.
“The flight of this species is not less interesting than any other of its characteristics. It probably surpasses in speed that of any other species of the feathered tribes, excepting the Humming-bird.” – John James Audubon
