I was in New England for a couple of weeks co-instructing a photography workshop with David Middleton and Scott Rouse and then off to New Hampshire for a private photography workshop. During the Vermont workshop we went to the dairy farm that David featured in his last book and I saw a zillion Barn Swallows with their babies and so as soon as the workshop was over I went to get some images.

In case you were curious:

  • The collective nouns for Swallows include, a flight, a gulp, a herd, a kettle, a richness, a sord or a swoop.
  • They spends more time in the air, than any other land bird.
  • They usually mate in the air.
  • They are capable of feeding their young while they are in flight.
  • Length: 7.5-8.5 inches Wingspan:12.6-13.6 inches

You can see all of my swallow images and order prints…HERE.

These barn Swallows are on private property and while Roger and Trish like company, they prefer to make the invites.
