Cliff Swallow

Almost a year after I saw my first cliff swallows, I saw them again in the exact same spot, at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, on the Auto Route, where there is a dammed up area of the river, used for irrigation, and they congregate in the bulrushes next to the river.  

They are gorgeous birds and appreciated all the more here because they rarely stand still. Even on the bulrushes they flit around, but there are opportunities for some decent photos. 

I share some of the photos.

  1. Great photos in spite of their constant movement. I especially like the third to last one of the bird with its head bent.
