Barn swallow (Hirundo rustica)

Every summer it is so nice to watch, how ...

the swallow parents still care about their already fully fledged begging offspring:

It is so fascinating how the swallow parents interrupt their fast flights for

a split second to feed their youngsters and then

immediately continue their flight:

"When I am grown up I also can do that!" Such a nice little blowhard!
