WATCHING - Male Tree Swallow watches for his mate to return as the two of them tag-team food foraging and feeding. Tree Swallow chicks (like all baby songbirds) hatch naked, with eyes closed and require constant feeding, warming and protection by parents to survive. Each adult waited in the nest cavity opening for the other to return, before taking their turn at aerial food foraging.

 

The female, with hints of the fancy iridescent blur her mate has, stood guard at the nest cavity opening while the male hunted.
