email@example.com Posted June 26, 2020 Share Posted June 26, 2020 Images captured last week at Loess Bluffs NWR in NW Missouri. The bird in the middle is a young Barn Swallow. Like all young Swallows, it'd open it's mouth anytime another bird would be near, as if to say "please shove a bug in there". The two birds flanking it were being bullies and pecking at it, and in one instance even knocked it off it's perch. The two lighter colored birds, are they even younger Barn Swallows that hadn't attained their "adult" plumage? Or are they adults going through molting? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
